Have you noticed how pervasive Christmas on Steroids has become in the last few years? Ever glitzier high-tech decorations, over-the-top LED Christmas tree lights and gigunda outdoor Christmas displays are dominating the holiday like never before. Although Bigger-and-Better is the order of the day when it comes to Christmas tree decorations, some people are opting out and trying to re-capture the simple delights of an old-fashioned Christmas.
Using the kids artwork, paintings and drawings from throughout the year will both involve them and use up all of that paper you have lying around. Paintings and collages can easily be turned into cute cards. Even worksheets with their colouring and writing on it can be used. Including the kids in your cardmaking does need some planning, so gather your materials and tools ahead of time. There is no surer way of boring the kids by running around trying to find those scissors when they are ready to go.
Look at the candles and holders once they are on the tree - Make sure you have positioned the candles so they are 100% clear of anything that could catch fire. This includes another limb, other candles, garlands, tinsel or nearby Christmas ornaments. Pay special attention to higher branches. Are they hanging over the candle in such a way that they could catch fire when the candle is lit? If so, you must move the candle.
