5 Favorite Fun & Frugal Activities to do with the Kids during the Holidays

With Thanksgiving just a few days away and Christmas not far ahead, I have been considering fun and frugal activities to do with my girls around the Holidays. When TwitterMoms and Nickelodeon introduced this blogging question as part of a Dora Christmas Carol Contest, I couldn’t resist sharing my thoughts.

Here are 5 things our family does throughout the Holiday season:

1. Who doesn’t like playing games?

My favorite thing growing up was, all the kids would gather together and we would pull out the board games and play. We could play though all the games, one by one.

With all the deals on board games lately, I have been interested in expanding our games closet with all the fun games I remember playing (Battleship, Monopoly, Connect 4), along with all the new ones they create (Elefun, Connect 4x4, Partini).

2. Who is in charge of placing the angel on top of the tree?

Of course, the day after Thanksgiving is our traditional day to put up our Christmas tree. Although, it does take a lot of self control for me to not break down and put it up earlier than Thanksgiving.

I love this time with the family. It seems like it is all smiles as everyone works together to make this beautiful addition to the family room d├ęcor. Then you get the next month (maybe two :) ) to be in awe over it.

3. What is your tradition on Christmas Eve?

I have heard the most wonderful Christmas Eve traditions throughout the years. Some traditions are passed along generation to generation and some families create their own traditions.

Our family traditions are no exception. When I was growing up, we would beg and beg my parents to let us open just one present on Christmas Eve and so I have integrated this tradition into our family. The children open one gift every Christmas Eve (which happens to always be pajamas – shhh – I’m sure they will catch on one day), they change and then we all work together to make our Christmas Eve pizzas, for dinner.

4. Do you think all the children will pose with Santa this year?

It is always a lot of fun to head down to the mall and get pictures taken with Santa (and one of his reindeer last year!!) The girls are so excited as we finally get up to Santa. They are picture perfect in their best Holiday dresses, hair in ribbons and pig tails. They hop up on Santa’s lap, with a sparkle in their eyes, tell him just how wonderful they have been this year and pose with the biggest smiles on their faces and off we go…

…. Yeah right! Usually they are impatiently standing in a line (which has 200 other families with their kids nicely behaving) pulling their hair out of their pigtails (which took 2 hours to get them all finished) all to get up to Santa… and one runs off screaming, the other one has a “I don’t have to look at him, talk to him, or smile… but I will stand by him, as long as its 8 feet away” attitude, and then finally my oldest (who has already been through all of these stages) will actually get on his lap and I might get a picture, but it’s nothing to write home about. But we do this every year, not because it ever works out how it’s supposed to, but because the children do get really excited about it.

5. Santa makes a list and checks it twice, have you?

Of course I saved my favorite fun and frugal activity for last… writing letters to Santa. Each year we collect the toy books from Target, Walmart, and Toys R Us. The children then each get a different colored crayon and go through the catalogs and pick out their favorite toys (not very often that EVERY SINGLE TOY isn’t circled).

Then, we begin writing our letters to Santa. I usually print out the formal greeting, “Dear Santa,” on some adorable Christmas bordered paper and let them write out their lists. Of course it has always been a jumbled mess of letters and scribbles, but I reassure them Santa can read their letters. In the past, we have cut out a few of the toy pictures from the catalogs and pasted them on the letters or they have even drawn the pictures themselves.

I find this my favorite activity because we spend time together being creative, the children talk about Santa, the best… the don’t fight and argue about who has which color crayon… because Santa will know they are being bad.

When they are finished, we then send the lists off to Santa (or sometimes bring them to him at the mall).

So what are your fun and frugal activities with your children?

A guy in the office came in today with a Huge grin on his face and tells me... "I have a deal for you."

He told me about this, so I sent my husband and cousin off to Walmart to check it out.

They got there and said there was a small sign stating that Guitar Hero Bundles, Band Hero, and DJ are included in the giftcard deal.

Of course I was interested in the small priced items, but all our store had was the Guitar Hero - World Tour Bundle and Guitar Hero 5 Bundle.  So I had my DH pick up 3 sets of the World Tour version.  And he did get back $40 gift card after each purchase.

These will make great Christmas gifts!

If you are planning to buy Band Hero, DJ Hero, or Guitar Hero 5, has a similar promotion!

Do you have an Alice?

Busy moms are often looking for ways to save time and money. Most of the time you have to choose one or the other. "I can save money by clipping coupons… or I can save time by heading to the store…"
What if I found a small solution to saving time and money? Every so often an opportunity jumps out that is a small solution to our time and money situations.

Do you remember Alice, from the Brady Bunch? Well how would you like to have an Alice? You can with a relatively new shopping site called, which carries numerous household and cleaning products. Name brand items that you probably already trust and use on a daily basis. The prices are comparable to big box stores like Sam’s Club and Costco, and FREE shipping!

In addition to the already low prices, offers clipless coupons that can net you some very low prices.

How Do I Use

The first thing to do is sign up here. This is totally free and only takes a couple of minutes.

Once you are logged in you can begin your shopping list. The first time you make a list, it will take a bit longer because you will be scheduling how often you want to purchase each item (don’t worry, they only send reminders, not actual shipments).

While you are shopping, will find and apply coupons automatically to your order. The list will show how much the item costs and then the amount of the coupon next to it.

Checking out is easy. takes major credit cards. Once you fill in your shipping and billing information the site saves it for future use. After your first order, you must order a minimum of six items but the shipping is always free. You can plan on receiving your order in one to four business days.

What Kind of Brands are Available?

There are hundreds of national brand available on Some of them are:

Lipton Tea
General Mills
and More

Why Haven’t I Signed Up Sooner?

I had signed up for back in June, during its Beta period, but never did anything with it. They were just starting out and I figured there was no way a website would cost me less money than going out to the stores with coupons in hand.
That’s where I was wrong. My interest in was renewed when I found that Swag Bucks was offering $5 giftcards for only 20 Swag Bucks.
I started looking through the site again and learned that there were a lot of items I could get for cheaper than store prices, plus they had their own coupons! And rather than taking the time to buy these things at the store, I can have them delivered easily, promptly, and inexpensively.

In conclusion, I find to be an up and coming website that I will be sure to use for my household needs. The sign up process is simple, applies coupons and free shipping, and has the name brand products I love. The only question left is, Do You Have an Alice?
