Plan the décor together 

What theme do you want for Christmas? This is something you can decide with your children. Browse the different themes online or come up with your own. 

Making your children involved in the planning is a great way to show them that you value their opinion. 

Ask them to help you pick up the décor items

There are plenty of décor items available. Why not get your children involved in picking and buying the decorations with you?  You can even set a budget and tell them the items should not be above what you have allocated. This will be a great way of teaching them lessons about money.

Decorate together  

Once you have planned and bought the items, allow your children to help you decorate the house. Also make room for their creativity. When they make mistakes, don't be too hard on them. Remember this is about bonding and strengthening the relationship between you and them.
