Easy peasy, lemon squeezie. This is a great project to get all age levels involved in a project during the holiday. After the big Thanksgiving dinner we have, for all those relative remaining, we start decorating my Mom's house so that she will not be left to do it alone. Here is a project the young ones can make to add to the tree.

Every year I volunteer at a local shelter and offer my services to put up a Christmas tree at no cost to them as a way to give back to the community. I attempt to make homemade ornaments with the residents if they would like to participate. This would be great project to get them involved.
