Nutcrackers are another Christmas decoration that have become increasingly popular over the years. They come in all shapes and sizes and can be found at most department stores during the holiday season. Nutcrackers originally became popular in Germany, and the first recorded nutcracker date back to the 15th century. The tradition of giving nutcrackers as gifts began in the 18th century, and they have been a popular Christmas decoration ever since. Nutcrackers are usually made of wood, and they are often painted to look like soldiers or other characters from traditional fairy tales. Today, nutcrackers are a favorite Christmas decoration for people all over the world, and they are sure to bring a touch of holiday cheer to your home.
Kids love Christmas lights! You can use them to create a festive atmosphere in any room, or even outdoors. String them up on the mantle, around the doorframes, or in the windows. Get creative and have fun! You can even use them to decorate your child’s bedroom. They’ll love going to sleep surrounded by the warmth and light of Christmas. And when they wake up on Christmas morning, they’ll be delighted to see their own special Christmas lights shining just for them.
Wreaths are a very popular decoration during Christmas. Most stores will sell pre-made wreaths, but you can also make your own using materials like evergreen branches, berries and ornaments. If you have small children, they will love decorating their very own wreath for the front door. Wreaths are not only decorative but they also have a great smell that will fill your home with the Christmas spirit. Making your own wreath is also a great activity to do with the kids and it will be something that you can cherish for years to come.
Elf on the Shelf
The Elf on the Shelf is a special scout elf sent from the North Pole to help Santa Claus manage his naughty and nice lists. When a family adopts an elf and gives it a name, the elf receives its Christmas magic and can fly back to the North Pole each night to tell Santa about all of the day’s adventures. Each morning, the elf returns to its family and perches in a new place, waiting to be found. Children love to wake up and search for their elf each morning, and many families even leave out special snacks and toys for their elf as a thank-you for all of its hard work. The Elf on the Shelf tradition is a fun way to get children excited about Christmas while also teaching them the importance of behaving well.
Ladder of Elves
One of the most fun parts of Christmas is decorating the tree. But why should the tree have all the fun? A ladder with stuffed animal elves is a fun Christmas decoration that your kids can get involved with. Give them a handful of stuffed elves, some garland, ornaments, and even allow them to wrap small gifts. Let your children decorate the ladder with some hot glue (supervised for older children and do it for your younger children) and let them decorate the ladder as if the elves are climbing the ladder and decorating the tree. Prop the ladder against the Christmas tree for a fun Christmas decoration. Your kids will love seeing their handiwork on display and it will make for a unique and festive addition to your home. So get creative this holiday season and involve your kids in the decorating with a ladder full of elf friends.
