Nothing says a family tree like adorable homemade ornaments that your children create. I love unpacking our Christmas decorations to find ornaments I have made with my kids. I know these are the decorations I will treasure for many, many years to come.

The one thing that stands in my way from making these creations is time and poor preparation. I either forget to go to the craft store to get the supplies, or I just don't make the time to do the craft. This year, I am starting early and am determined to have a craft afternoon or two with my boys.
