I love involving the kids in decorating our home at Christmas! While having them help me do all the decorations stresses me out a bit, I find making special projects just for them is a great way to let them join in the process of making our home festive for the holidays!
Simple is my favorite word when it comes to doing anything with young kids. (Not to mention six kids!)
I planned a fun night of making paper chains, cutting out paper ornaments that spell Merry Christmas and our favorite snack of Goldfish Cheddar Colors crackers.
Goldfish crackers are a “Must Always Have” in our house! They are always baked with real cheese, no preservatives, and the colors are sourced from plants. It’s a snack I always feel good about serving to my kids. (And I like them too!)
The oldest boys really got into making the paper chain. It’s such a simple, old-school decoration, but it has a charm that reminds me that Christmas is all about the simple things.
Construction paper, scissors and tape is all you need to make your paper chain. You can use just traditional red and green holiday colors or do the whole rainbow!
The Merry Christmas Ornament letters were easy for the boys to cut out. We used tape to secure them to the wall.
We decided that the breakfast nook was the best place to decorate with our Christmas decoration creations.
I love making memories with the kids. It’s something special when you sit down with your kids, make crafts, eat Goldfish crackers, and crack up at their crazy conversations.
All I want for Christmas is a lot more of these crazy kids smiles!
