DIY Christmas decoration ideas for your children

The best time of the year is always the holidays. And in that Christmas holidays are often of the most looked forward days for everyone. We get gifts, a big dinner, family get-togethers and many more such things make Christmas time really memorable. Speaking of which we recommend you look at Christmas Decorations at Christmas Elves for good creative options. Other than that, let move on with some DIY ideas for decorations your children try today –

1.Origami stars and garlands –

Stars and bells are a must when we look for decoration items for our Christmas trees. This time instead of purchasing those plastic stars with colorful glitters, make your own decorations with paper. Origami stars and garlands can look amazing on trees and being simple to make, your children will also have a great time making them. Apart from this, look around on the internet and we are sure you will find great options to make. Choose some nice colorful paper sheets and add some glitters to them once the stars are ready. Don't forget to learn the method yourself first so that it can be easier to help your children if needed.

2.Sock puppets –

We all remember the time when we used to sleep on Christmas nights thinking Santa would keep our gifts. Yet nowadays, reusing the od sock pairs and making puppets can be a creative solution. Take a pair of socks and add buttons to it can act as the character's eyes. Take some yarn and stitch it to make some hair. Likewise, you can add other elements which you find interesting and make the sock puppet unique. A tip here is that you can make different puppets for your family members and gift them on Christmas eve.

3.Holiday cards –

Handmade holiday cards are one of the things that people cherish for a long time. Give your children some paper and colors and tell them to make holiday cards for your family relatives. Make sure you tell them to write a special message so that the people receiving it would feel special. Giving a theme of cartoons or Christmas stories can be a great starter on the holiday cards. Cards are gestures of personal touch and feelings for someone just like writing a letter. Moreover, this gesture can feel great on receiving and release happy hormones in one's body.

4.Dinner table bows and ribbons –

Christmas eve is looked forward to by almost all of us for family time and gifts. At this time, meals are a big part of the occasion. Decorating the dining table with handmade bows and ribbons can enlighten your holiday experience. On normal days, we don't usually pay that much attention to the dining table but during Christmas time it can be a great chance to beautify. Make nice bows with colored ribbons and place them beautifully on the table. Don't forget to include the chairs in too for the matching set. Also, observe your Christmas tree's decoration and try to compliment it with your dining table decorations. Overall, make the house more colorful and visually appealing for the holiday time.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
