  • Our kids were 3 1/2, 5, and 7 when we adopted them and they've helped decorate always. I love handing them the ornaments and then they hang them on the tree. When they were little, they hung most of them on the top half of the tree but now, 11 years later, they hang most of them on the top half of the tree!

  • Mine started as soon as they could walk. We put child-safe soft ornaments on the bottom of the tree, so the little ones put those ones up.

  • Spud had just turned two I think. This was the first year (he's 4 now) that he really was completely interested in the decorating though.
