Creating Christmas with my children …

There has been a lot of Christmas creativity going on here lately.

My eldest son has decorated his room.  The key element of his decorating is this big paper chain.  Each link is decorated with red and green pencil and the whole chain is about 5 metres long.

I am doing an online course with Alisa Burke – Create Daily, Holiday Edition (because I loved Create Daily).  I’m loving it and highly recommend it (these 2 courses have done so much for me as far as seeing myself as creating/creative in ways other than writing, craft projects or designing projects for my children). 

One of her suggested projects is decorating your own Christmas baubles.  Once they saw me doing this, my sons had to try this.  These are decorated with paint markers.

I usually attach baubles to our Christmas gifts as a decoration, so I will be attaching these to our presents, but for now they are safely stored on our tree.

The other Christmas job we have been doing is wrapping our presents.  My sons have been decorating the parcels for their cousins and family friends.

How has the Christmas season inspired you or your children to be creative?
