Magic Christmas BearsThanks to Catherine for this Frugal Baby Tip!

Here's a simple holiday tradition of ours that might help keep your little ones happy during this busy season. We have 3 Magic Bears, one for each of my sons, that would appear in our house on December 1st. All through the holidays, these tiny teddy bears would move about, from place to place - but only if no-one was watching.

Sometimes the boys would try to catch the bears, but they never moved while the boys waited. Then, the minute the boys would wander off, the bears would run to a new hiding spot. Sometimes the bears would be easy to spot, and sometimes just a tiny ear would be poking out of their hiding space.

Whenever the boys would start getting too rowdy for inside play, or start to fight, I would call out, "Where are those bears now?" Off they would go, to hunt the bears down!

On Christmas morning , the bears could be found hanging on the Christmas tree, where they would stay for the rest of the holiday season.

NOTE: Our bears are simple teddy bear ornaments, you could use anything - angels, snowmen, sants clauses, etc.
