Today we have two special treats for you -- some gorgeous ideas for holiday decorating AND one amazing holiday giveaway!
One of my favorite ways to decorate during the holidays is with natural items.
Whether it's as simple as the kids collecting pinecones and hedge apples in a basket or a more detailed activity like creating nature ornaments, the end result is a cozy, rustic feel and some wonderful smells throughout the house.
And yes, we always have a real tree ;)
Natural items are readily available at no cost -- just scout our your own backyard or a local park (remember, don't take anything off the trees, just use some of what's fallen to the ground and be sure to leave enough for the animals who will need the items).
And did you catch that? The going outdoors part!
We are always looking for ideas to get outdoors more during the colder weather! Have you read about our jingle bell hunt as a way I get the kids outside more?
Hunting down items from nature is a fun way to get the kids outside for some extra "burn off energy" time!
Plus, natural items can be used in so many ways -- try a few of these amazing activities and crafts this holiday season!Continue reading
