Make your Christmas a memorable one by involving your kids in the decoration process. Get them thrilled and entertained with these holiday decoration ideas that will surely turn your house into your dream Christmas home.
With just a few craft supplies and your creativity to finish it up, you’ll be surprised with what your children can make. In fact, a UK-based retail store even gives out great tips and tricks on how to make your Christmas more “personalized”. You can get ideas from the M&S tutorial on decorating your own Christmas tree to get you started. And although the Christmas tree is the core of every holiday home, there are other fun ways to engage the whole family in preparing for the season. Here are a few tips:
1. Involve your kids when shopping for decorations and setting up the Christmas tree. Hang their crafts or pictures on your Christmas tree. It would mean so much to them when you value their work and the opinions when it comes to decisions at home.
2. Let your kids decorate their own bedrooms. Let them make snowflakes cut out or let them draw their own version of Santa to add their own touch to the process.
3. Encourage them to get creative by letting them make their own Christmas cards from scratch. With just a plain paper and some crayons, the kids get to express their love for you and other family members.
4. Make your own personalized gift wrappers by letting your children draw Christmas Wreaths or symbols on plain wrapping papers. Involve them on the wrapping process, too, teaching them the value of giving and sharing for the season.
5. Nothing gets the kids more excited about Christmas than counting down the days until they get to open their presents. Let your kids make paper boxes and attach hand – drawn numbers to them and let them change the date everyday over dinner.
6. Have them help you create a Christmas scrapbook, documenting your holiday parties, dinners and getaways. Let them take pictures and write about the stories of their Christmas adventures.
Christmas definitely is for the kids. So take advantage of the season and spend some quality time by making your home a truly inviting one this Holiday season.
