A New New Year's Tradition?

It's brand new for us this year; hopefully we'll be able to continue this every year. I had originally wanted to do this as a stocking stuffer for Christmas, but I found myself running out of time.
But it made a perfect gift for the new year! It's a coupon book. Each child gets a coupon a month. Each coupon has an activity to do with either mama or daddy--work on a puzzle together, go on a bike riding date, bake cookies together, etc.

And I put each coupon book into a stuffed heart. It's the Family Heart from Soulemama's second book.

The kids were really excited about the different activities--most of them are ready to cash in January's coupon today!
