My parents have a large window facing the street in front of their home. When we were growing up, we would tape a message cut out of Christmas wrapping paper: "Happy Birthday Jesus." Each letter was cut the size of one of the small windows, and when assembled, could be read from the street.
This year, my parents made a Thanksgiving decoration for the window. They put pictures of family members on each limb of the Thanksgiving tree.
This is a great idea for decorating your home for the holidays, either in a window, or on a wall in your home. Little ones can help with the cutting and taping of this project. You can use many different types of paper such as brown shipping paper, construction paper, tissue paper, or holiday wrapping paper to make your design.
For Christmas, you could do an idea similar to the Thanksgiving tree, using a Christmas tree and putting family pictures inside the presents under the tree.
Be creative this year, and involve the kiddos in some great family traditions!
