Christmas Elf Countdown: Day 2

Decorate the Tree

Six days until Christmas! Sam wants to help his parents spruce up the Christmas tree. As he gets ready to decorate the tree, Sam finds unique ornaments — the bell he made for his mom last year, a photo ornament from his first Christmas (his mom’s favorite!) and a shiny star for the top of the tree.

Get inspired to make your own ornaments together! Some creative ways to make homemade decorations for the tree include salt dough ornaments, paper chain garlands, or pipe cleaner candy canes. We also have a step-by-step guide for a special tree topper that you and your child might want to make and decorate together!

Every Christmas tree is unique. Share the ways your family decorates yours on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using the hashtag #ChristmasElfCountdown.

We’re going to light it up on Day 3 with another holiday activity, which will be posted here and on social media tomorrow!
