Crafting at Christmas has always been a pleasure and making decorations for the tree can be a joy.
Whether you buy inexpensive kits from a craft shop/supermarket or you totally make your own there is no doubt handmade decorations rock. Even a card snowflake with a ribbon loop sellotaped to its’ back looks beautiful hung on a tree.
Why not keep one decoration made by your child each and every year. Put the date on the back and stash away in a lovely storage box. The very first year they have their own tree in their own home you can give this treasure trove of homemade baubles as a present to them.
Alternately you could take them to choose one new bauble each year and it could have pride of place on the tree then be put in their special collection box for their future.
