What are your Sweet Peas going to do to decorate for Christmas? We're going to make the green and red construction-paper-links tomorrow Kensley is dying to decorate, so that means doing something both kids can do.

Anything else SUPER simple and non-messy we can do? I thought string popcorn, then I thought about needles, string and popcorn mess and quickly dismissed that idea.

We could do some snowflakes. I have itty-bitty-kid scissors they can used while supervised. I just thought we could hang them from the construction-paper-links, or mix them in somehow.

Other ideas?

We'll probably put up the tree Fri or Saturday, so more decorating will commence this weekend!

What will you all do?

Hat's off to Vicki for my cute siggy, thank you!

Our decorations are VERY low key this year-tree/train, stockings, small nativity set, and a Santa/reindeer decoration on the mantel and a couple of other things hung on the wall. Trying to keep the house clutter free right now.

Teresa loves taking the Little Einsteins ornament off and flying it around the room and taking the trumpet ornament off and pretending to play it. Other than that, she's been good with the tree.

We only put non-glass ornaments on the tree, so Betsy has been "decorating" with those -- taking them on and off, playing with them, and such.

We'll make some type of ornament for the tree -- last year I bought her a big white "B" and let her drizzle glitter glue on it (it wasn't very messy). I still have a full bottle of ModPodge left from Halloween, so will do something with that -- we smeared it all over a pumpkin and then she put colorful pieces of tissue paper on -- so will do something similar.

If you're looking for little kid crafts, Pinterest is the place to be!
Thank you JAIDYNSMUM for my adorable new siggy!

What about stringing froot loops on yarn? You can use tape to make the yarn like a needle.
