An anonymous (lovely) Parenthacker shared this suggestion for distributing the holiday gift excess:
If your kids are like many in this country, they got spoiled with tons of toys this Christmas…probably more than they know what to do with. Instead of fighting crowds and waiting in line to return them just to get a gift card to buy more stuff to clutter the home, use it to teach your children a lesson in generosity and humility. Pick a charity and take them to donate some new, unopened toys they got. For example, a Children’s Hospital. They’ll see how other children aren’t as fortunate as they are and feel good about helping other children feel better.
