It’s that time of the year again when you start to think about decorating your house for the holidays. Argh… is one of the first thoughts that may come to mind for many adults, when we think about this hefty endeavor. Many parents are already tired, overworked and have too much on their plates. The thought of adding another task can be overwhelming. That is just when the kids will say, “let’s decorate the house, it’ll be fun!”
You can make it fun. Let’s start by involving the entire family in the decorating festivities, instead of dreading the work it takes to decorate your house. You can follow some of these ideas and plans to get your family started.
Some ideas for decorating…
*Another good tip for next year is to stock up at the after holiday sales to find some great decorations for good prices.
Finally the ultimate goal when decorating your home is to have fun, spend quality time with your family and end up with a holiday display that everyone had a hand in creating. Remember that your family can add many of their own traditions to make it special. If you want to add a little zip to your holiday decorating you can always add some healthy snacks, warm hot chocolate and holiday music playing in the background. The point is to discover, as a team what works best for your family. Happy Decorating to all!
