Making Memories: Wishing Spool

This is a great way to see your children’s wishes and desires change as they move in and out of phases from Family Fun.

First take a wooden thread spool, you can probably find one at Hobby Lobby or the such, and paint it to your desired color. Then have your child write want he or she wants on a strip of paper cut to fit the spool. Then wrap it around the spool using double sided tape, leaving a bit hanging off. Then thread ribbon through the hole in the spool and tie it so you can hang it on the tree. Write your child’s name and the year on a label and attach to the ribbon. Tada! There’s a list for Santa (and yourself) to see what your child wants for Christmas that year, and past years.
