I bought a bunch of cute wooden frame ornaments from JoAnn's last year after Christmas for 70% off or something (reg. only $1). The kids painted them and had a lot of fun.
This is one of the ornaments I painted last year and glittered it up. I'm trying to do one for my son and one for my daughter every year. Love this new tradition. Makes the tree OURS.
Kids under our cut down tree for $8. I love living in Colorado.
P painting a snowman. Notice the white paint on her lip. She likes to eat it I think.....
A glittered train. My son LOVES trains.
This is the other tradtion I've started. When my husband and I lived in our last house, there was no room for a real tree so I bought three cute little fake trees. Now we put a tree in each of our kids' rooms as their night light and it's GREAT. They love it and it makes their rooms so festive.
I found this Hershey chocolate train at a thrift store here and since I'm from PA and my son LOVES trains, it's perfect. Our kids got to pick the ornaments they wanted and my son picked almost all of the trains. He has a train tree.
