I don't really buy sesonal decorations. I hate storing them & I HATE packing them up when the season is over! Too much work. So at our house we fill our home with seasonal decorations made by the kids & me. Now that sounds very hokey...& it is...but we love it. Especially the kids! Here is my little Bo making his pumpkins this year.
I always have some shapes cut out for him to glue on. I try to have my daughter cut her own shapes. But I must admit it is very hard for me to keep my hands off their projects. I like the mouths centered & the eyes matching. But if I can restrain myself...their creations always turn out to be my favorite.
This little guy ended up with 2 mouths. He is our favorite!
Last year we did monsters! Those were a ton of fun!
Every holiday we make something a little different.
On birthdays I always have the house decorated when they wake up.
And we like to send dad holiday emails by our creations.
St. Patrick's Day
And Valentine's Day is always filled with red balloons.
Cheesey? Maybe. But we love it.
The best part is...after a week...just toss them all in the trash. No packing, no storage.
For Christmas we go real decorations, but other holidays...homeade all the way.
