Remember the holidays of your childhood? For some of us, this meant decorating the house, entertaining friends and neighbors, exchanging gifts, or attending holiday events with the family. If you find yourself feeling nostalgic for bygone times, we say now is a great time to start a holiday tradition of your own. Read on for a few suggestions to get you and your family started on your very own holiday traditions this year.
DIY Tree Ornaments
Turn on your favorite holiday music, grab the kids, friends, or both, and get busy making ornaments your family will cherish for years. Check out CountryLiving.com for great ideas.
Take a Family Photo
What better way to document your kids (and pets) as they grow? Holiday photos create treasured keepsakes you will enjoy for years.
Make a Gingerbread House
It’s perfect. A fun holiday project you can eat. TheSpruceEats.com tested Gingerbread Kits and found the Hasbro Candy Land Gingerbread House to be best suited for kids with lots of decorative candy to choose from.
