We did it!
We built our very own cardboard Christmas tree! It was totally fun, totally messy, and totally worth it!! Taking the kids outside to play was not happening today. It's gotten way too cold for my liking. So, I got my creative thinking cap on, and thought, let's build a Christmas tree!! I knew it could go completely wrong, but I wanted to try anyway; and I'm glad we did! We love it.
It looks like a risky idea for those with littler ones, I know. But the moments when they're just walking around the tree a million times with yarn; or sticking a million bobbles or stickers on, one-by-one, it's really pretty manageable; as those steps take so long. Clearly, there is no exact science to this, but I'll show you how we went about doing it. It's more simple than you might think.
