Don't forget to feed the birds and squirrels and other critters in your yard this winter. In fact, before your kids even start opening gifts, have them take some breadcrumbs and seeds out for the birds to celebrate the day. Thinking of others is always a good idea for those who are so gifted themselves.
Longwood Gardens has a great display of real trees outfitted with the most amazing ornaments made of birdseed and other good things the wild critters love. They've even provided some directions for making some simpler ornaments that kids might have fun doing.
