Christmas, that joyful time where we focus on family and food. Well, sometimes.
I’ve gotta admit, Christmas didn’t mean that much to me until I had kids. But now, as a mother, it’s taken on a whole new meaning.
I love decorating with them, we make a night of putting up the tree and have Christmas songs on the stereo as much as we can.
We also love to make our own decorations. Not only is it a great way to save money and reduce plastic use, but it’s also a neat family tradition to start.
It’s something I recall strongly from being a child. Our tree was always plastered in decorations my brother and I had made.
Now we’re both grownups, my Mum decorates her tree beautifully, but back then it was all about us kids. And I am so thankful she instilled that in me.
If you also like to make DIY Christmas decorations for kids (and grownups), these are a few gorgeous ideas to try with your kids.
