Why A Kids’ Christmas Tree is Essential Business

November 23, 2020

This is only the second year that we have given our kids their very own Christmas tree to decorate, and I think it is something that we will do every year until they are over it. I have to be honest, and tell you that I struggled early on with putting all of their beautiful, handmade, very special ornaments on our big tree. I was tired of feeling bad about it and for going behind them to “fix” their decor. Last year, it finally hit me… why not let them have their own?

When I say it is theirs… I mean it. Of course, I assist them with setting it up and adding lights, but after that it is all theirs! The perfect place to hold all of their ornaments and for them to stick ten ornaments on one branch if they want to! I think my favorite part might just be the star. If you follow me over on Instagram then you may have seen how my oldest son attempted to add this star to the tree. I love their ingenuity and creativity!

I was not really a huge fan of this train when the boys first got it but now we all love it! They know that when the train comes down it is getting closer to Christmas! They can spend hours here making it go ‘round and ‘round, while they see how much they can pile on top before everything falls off. I sit back and listen to the stories they create surrounding the train situation and my heart feels so full!

Last year we also added these personalized gift sacks for the boys and I think they are so cute! I also thought that they would somehow help me to control my Christmas spending… you know… like I would not buy more than what could fit in each sack. That still has not happened. I think it may be easier when they are older and their gifts are smaller! LOL! We also grabbed the advent calendar last year, from a thrift store in Nashville during our visit last Thanksgiving.

I just think this tree is so adorable. I love how the ornaments stop naturally at the highest point that their little hands can reach. They did grab a step stool and do some climbing on the column to get some of them that high, but I am excited to see how this height line changes year to year. Their little set up is located in our homeschool room this year, so they get to gaze at it all day long! These kids were so proud of themselves when they were done and proudly proclaimed that they did it all by themselves! Maybe next year, we can take them to a few stores to add to their tree decor stash. What do you think? Do you or will you allow your kids to have a decorate their own tree or space for the holidays?
