We set up our little winter nature scene today. We used a vase of branches cut from our Christmas tree, wooden figures and a picture book about winter. It's simple, but our oldest is just now getting interested in things like this.
Since we have a multitude of thank you notes to write for Christmas gifts, we recycled some of our daughter's paintings. I found a package of 50 cards and envelopes at Michael's (never forget the 50% off coupon... I think the whole pack cost $3.50!) and I rubber cemented rectangles of her artwork. It is an inexpensive and quick project but it will mean a lot to the people that we are thanking!
