Now that our little ones are getting old enough to understand what Christmas is all about and get excited about the season, I’ve really been working to create awesome traditions that they will remember for the rest of their lives. Christmas is my favorite time of year and I love the extra time we get to spend with family but I’ve also been adamant about having our own traditions at our house for our kids. 

Holiday Traditions with Hallmark Northpole #NorthpoleFun

As difficult as it can be sometimes, with so much traveling and family to see around the holidays, I’ve declared Christmas Eve our “Stay at Home Celebration”. Each year we purchase items that go into a family box to be opened the morning of Christmas Eve. I wrote about it briefly last year and this year we are continuing this holiday tradition and making it even better with Hallmark Northpole! Our family box is filled with items for us to do all day on Christmas Eve, including: cookie making, movies and stories. When I was at Walmart recently I found some awesome new items that can be added this year to make it even more fun! 

Hallmark Northpole at Walmart #NorthpoleFun

Yes, at Walmart!!! It’s your “Direct Link to Northpole Magic”! With our family box including things like story books and cookie decorating supplies, I was THRILLED to find some of these items in the Northpole Magic aisle! In celebration of Hallmark’s new Northpole movie, Walmart has an aisle full of #Northpole fun like toys, books and cookie baking items…all perfect for holiday fun at my house and yours! 

Hallmark Northpole Storybook #NorthpoleFun This was one of two storybooks I found at my local Walmart and this one includes a super fun snowflake that lights up so Santa can find you Christmas Eve! My kids are going to be so excited to find the Once Upon A Northpole Christmas story book + Find me Santa Snowflake in the family box this year! I also found a fun Magic Snowball that, when tossed, lights up in various colors! I’m actually going to get a few more of these to add to the box and let them have a fun time tossing the balls to see the lights in the early evening! 

Hallmark's Northpole Sprinkle BellCookie decorating just got more fun with the Sprinkle Bell! You fill it with sprinkles, give it a shake and decorate your cookies with as many sprinkles as you want! This is something else the kids will love to find in our traditional Christmas Eve box! 

The other thing I found at Walmart is the Northpole Communicator! This is a new tradition that we started just this morning! This toy is AWESOME! 

Talking to the Elves #NorthpoleFun

Forgive the bedhead look, but this tradition is something we will do first thing in the morning. Each morning they will be able to contact the Northpole and TALK to someone there!! They were so excited this morning! the Northpole Communicator is definitely something we will enjoy nearly the whole month while counting down to Christmas! 

Hostess Gifts #NorthpoleFun

Another tradition we have in my family is the ladies gather the night before our celebration to wrap gifts and bake. It’s so much fun and this year I get to spread the #NorthpoleFun and take one of these fun hostess gifts!

Bring the Northpole home from Walmart with Hallmarks’ Northpole books, toys and hostess gifts! What traditions can you start with these toys?

  11. Thanks for sharing this, April! You are creating many great memories with your beautiful children. How fun to talk to Santa’s elves!

  12. This is cute, and those under $10 gifts are perfect for teacher’s. That cookie sprinkler looks adorable too, I am going to have to look for that.

  13. The Hallmark Northpole items are so cute (and the movie was awesome, too). I bought the Sprinkle Bell for a friend’s daughter, and then I had to buy one for us, too. It’s definitely a fun way for my daughter to add a little bling to our yearly holiday cookies.
