Homemade Christmas Decorations For Kids Questions Answered!

  1. Any ideas for a homemade Christmas gift for my mom?

    I want to make her something that she will like, and maybe it can come in handy too. She likes decorations (christmas ones) and she loves penguins. really anything though, something nice though. BTW I am a teen so no need for little stupid kid crafts

  2. Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet anyone remember a Christmas episode?

    I am trying to figure out the name of this episode...The family was on a car trip to somewhere for the holiday, but for some reason they end up stranded in the woods, so they decide to make the best of the situation & find an abandoned cabin in which they have Christmas. They chop down a tree, make homemade decorations, build a fire in the fireplace as it begins to snow. The kids are miserable at first but end up feeling as though it was the best Christmas ever. Hopefully someone will know the name of this episode!

  3. Good homemade decorations for a teen girl bedroom?

    I'm working on my bedroom and I'd like to make some decorations. I'm painting my walls light purple in a couple of weeks and I need to go through everything in my room. I cleared up A LOT of storage by putting a lot of my pictures into frames and into a couple of collages. My mom laughed and said, "You and your collages!" I'm almost fifteen and my room still gives off a kid vibe to me. I'm getting rid of a lot of stuff, like art I did in middle school. I am keeping my wood shop projects though. Don't suggest collages please cause I'm making more once I get some magazines I can cut up. I have beads, glue, foam, foam glue (heehee), computer paper, colored pencils, paints, canvas (I'm a painter), and I was thinking of doing something with my card collection. I have cards backing from the time I was seven up until now. By cards I mean Christmas and birthday cards. I also take the pictures from my calender and put them on the wall as posters. I love taking pictures, but I won't be taking any until next month when I'm on vacation with my family. Any other ideas of what to do with my pictures besides putting them in frames, on my cork board, and in collages? I have photo albums, but I like to have my pictures out in the open. Sorry for so much detail, but I thought some of the info might help!

  4. My husband has a large family approximately 16 people then 4 more with mine so 20?

    Well we all decided to have Christmas at my house. Our house isnt very big but it is in the center from where everyone else lives so its conveinent. We are celebrating it before X-mas so the kids can enjoy their gifts on X-mas. My question is does anyone have any ideas on how to accomplish the party without everyone feeling cramped also any ideas on decorations (maybe cheap or homemade) that can be put up to make it look beautiful. And any food ideas would be great!! Thanks so much in advance for all of your help.

Does anyone have any ideas on what to get these family members for Christmas that's not so much money or that could be homemade?? 1) dad- He loves cars and likes to be on the computer. He is like a car genus and can fix anything. He is a project manager. 2) mom- She reads, plays the piano and guitar. Her favorite color is red. She's a stay at home mom who homeschools me and some of my siblings. She has great style. 3) brother- He like the computer too and is moved out and has a wife with two todderler kids; they love spider man, spngebob, green hault, and are really cool; the wife loves jelery and makeup and is so pretty and has really good style too 4) brother- He is funny and really likes games outside and stuff.

But if you have any ideas on him? 7) my sister Katelyn is young she likes decorations and movies and stuff. She is getting a gourgous big new room made so I could make her a decoration or something? Thanks so much for the help!!

  6. Is it ok to not go 'all out' for birthdays/holidays?

    We have a 5 month old son, he will be our only child. Everyone is already asking me what we are doing for his bday, what themes we are thinking of, ect. We come from modest means, comfortable, but not at all well off. Our relatives have birthday parties for their kids with a big store bought cake, about $50 of just decorations and all kinds of gifts, game systems, ipods, and invite all the aunts,uncles, grandparents, cousins, whatever. They go all out on christmas, easter, even valentines day GIFTS. I'm not saying this to be critical, I think its fine if they want to do it for their kids. Just showing what the family climate is like. We get criticized for not going to every bday party, saying 'YOU will expect everyone to come to YOUR kids bday.' Well, not really. If my husband is working, I don't tend to go to his sis and bros kids bdays alone. Am I horrible? Lol these are kids who are 3-9 yo. My husband and I are just not into the consumerism, going into debt for a holiday, buying games systems and tons and tons of gifts. We DO not want to have a materialistic spoiled child. We aren't hippies or Crunchies! Lol When my husband and I think of birthdays growing up, we had a homemade cake and a few small gifts. Never renting a hall or chucky cheez, ect. How all out do you go? Do you have the whole family over for every birthday? Do you ever feel obligated to do this? Do you expect all the local relatives to come over? If all the cousins have big parties, and we have a modest homey bday, will my kid feel bad? What do you do? Are we required to have a big party? We have the money and of course we adore our son! :) Of course we will have a cake and gifts and when he is older we will do whatever dinner he wants. As with so many things in this family I feel like I can go along OR be criticized. Thoughts?

  7. Why doesn't my mom ever care anymore?

    I am 11 yrs. old and I think I am starting to get depressed. About 5 years ago was my last fun Christmas, because of my dad dying, now we never a tree, stocking, I never get to bake or do the fun stuff I used to with my dad, and now my mom just yells a lot. Even when I beg for a tree I get yelled at and when I try to dig out the old decorations or make my own I get yelled at and cursed at. I don't really care about the holidays anymore because of it, I stopped believing in Santa when I was 7 because I wished for my house to be pretty and Christmasy the next year and I was disappointed. Its not just Christmas it is every holiday. When I give my mom a homemade card or something it seems like she doesn't care. On report cards, talent shows, everything! Everyday, when my big sister does something and I say something about it my mom yells at me. And when I do it I still get yelled at. Every time we fight even if my side is truthful I always get told to shut up. Today was starting to turn around, I was chosen to play the xylophone in the school Christmas concert. I was so happy because out of my whole class I played it based on memory with no sheet. SO I go home to tell my mom and guess what she says. "I see it every year its the same sh*t, I see plenty of other kids do that" And she is not even coming. At mass too when I was chosen to read the gospel for the Thanksgiving mass, she never came and I almost cried when I didn't see her. But every time my older sister does something she has to invite the entire family. When I didn't make the basketball team last year and I was upset the most she said was "I told you that you shouldn't have tried out." I don't know what else to do, I play instruments, get honors, in the choir, participate in mass, tutor, and I knitting and crochet. This stuff hasn't bothered me til a few weeks ago. I never noticed because I thought life was always like this. Can someone give me an idea to cheer me up, or does anyone have a clue on why my mom is being like this? My dad already died 5 years ago. I put it in the wrong tense I think

  9. Mall Scavenger Hunt List?

    My sister is having a 12th birthday party at well, the mall. And it's going to be like... following this: "For my daughter's thirteenth birthday she had a Mall Scavenger Hunt and a sleepover. We had to make sure that it was a party she would remember, since she was no longer a kid. INVITATIONS: For the invitations, she made Visa Credit cards on the computer, with the guest's name on the front, and all of the information on the back. She printed it onto gold cardstock (for thicker paper) and got them laminated. She put them into envelopes along with confetti, and mailed them. She invited 7 people, plus her is 8. DECORATIONS: My daughter's favorite colors - white/grey and black - created the main color scheme. We had streamers and balloons in all of the rooms the girls would be in, along with whited christmas lights. We also bought black and white plates utensils and cups along with a cake that had white and black icing. PARTY: After arrival the girls just hung out for a while and then we drove them over to the mall. My daughter made a list of items that were needed to be bought at the mall pictures to be taken free items to be collected and a Bonus section. She printed out that list along with the rules such as all team members must be in the pictures etc. All girls pulled a bandana out of a bag and went to their teams (we had 2 teams of 4.) Then they decided amongst themselves who would be the captain. The captain received a cheap purse from the dollar store which held $40, a camera, the list my daughter had made, and the rules. The they had 1 1/2 hours to buy items (such as a stuffed animal or a brown hair accessory), take pictures (such as modeling designer handbags and wearing green lipstick), and collect free items (such as a business card or napkin). Each of these things were worth a certain amount of points - Purchases = 3 pts each; Pictures = 2 pts each; Free Items = 1 pt each. We also gave them about 1 1/2 hours to shop for themselves if they weren't tired. The girls came home for pizza, cake, and opening of presents. While they were doing this my husband got the photos developed so we could tally up points. The winning team got to pick a bag first. In the bag were the items that the teams had bought. After those were all gone, the girls made t-shirts. We gave them each a white t-shirt and set out scissors, tacky glue, a stapler, fabric markers, glitter glue, and extra multi-colored fabric. Then after 30 minutes, they voted on their favorites. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places got a crown and a huge lollipop. Then the girls had free time and they all went outside to play kick the can. Then they came in at about 10:00 for movies. Downstairs we had set up a snack bar with popcorn soda and boxes of candy. The girls watched a few chick flicks them stayed up until about three talking and listening to music. In the morning, I made homemade waffles and let them add syrup powdered sugar fruit and whipped cream. They LOVED them. Then the girls played around outside until their parents came at 10:30. We gave the girls their goody bags then finally got our rest. GOODYBAGS: For goody bags we gave out - along with the picture frames and scavenger hunt items - a lot of candy and 2 kingsized candy bars. My daughter and all of her friends absolutely loved this party and my daughter doesn't stop talking about it! I would strongly recommend it to anyone throwing their daughter a 13th birthday party. I hope this helps with your party!"
