Popsicle stick decor
Personalize your tree with ornaments that your kids crafted. Prepare popsicle sticks, glue, ribbons, and markers. Guide your kids in turning the sticks into mini trees and other shapes. Once done, you can also paint them in your preferred colors. After you've worked on the decorations, ask your kids to hang them on the tree.

Repurpose a few sheets of art and construction paper by turning them into angel decor. Work with different colors for a more playful vibe. Guide your kids in tracing and cutting the templates and let them see how you construct each. Prepare strings or ribbons that you can use to hang the finished pieces.
