FORGET Christmas Eve boxes, mums are now making special gifts for their kids to open on New Year’s Eve – and they can entertain your kids for the whole of 2022.
The thoughtful “gift of time” boxes can be made without spending a penny if you are on a budget, and seem like a sweet way to start the year.
Inside the boxes are envelopes labelled up with each month of the year, from January to December.
The pouches contain a piece of paper, which includes a poem about a fun activity the family will enjoy that month.
In pictures shared to the Facebook group Family Lockdown Tips & Ideas, one mum had done vouchers for day trips like to a penny arcade machines, a mountain walk and a movie night.
