my son, 5 years old, helps while my daughter, 17 years old, tells him how to decorate because he would put all the decorations on only 1 side of the tree
not putting one up...but he has in the past
Yes. Drives me and dh nuts because we are both very particular about organization and symmetry but the kids love it. We'll have a perfect tree when they're grown :) unless we have grandchildren....
yes they do. they hand us the branches to put the tree together, then we put the lights and garland on. i get the ornaments out of the boxes and they get to put them up on the tree. i only help if the ornament needs to go close to the top.
We haven't gotten ours yet. We should be getting it next week :)
We put our tree up on the 29th. They don't help as they are still little and their elf on a shelf Elf Wesley puts it up when they are sleeping.
Yup, she always does! So the bottom of my tree is a little dense, but that's alright. She's a good helper, she hands me the ornaments to put on the top and helps me string the lights. I just can't wait until she's tall enough to start reaching the top!
The tree is up and has lights, we haven't quite gotten to the ornaments yet, b/c we've been so busy. The kids are ready, probably tomorrow.
We put ours up several days ago and the kids loved helping.
