Then my SIL made them this one, and we all love it. In each pocket is a decoration to put on the tree and I also put little slips of paper in with a message on. The message is usually something to do, such as, bake cookies, make gingerbread house, go skating, go sledding, make a gift, get tree, etc. A few days this month I haven't had the slip of paper in and the boys have let me know that this is a must-have. ;-)
This is a decoration that I made many, many years ago (BK - before kids) but I still love it. Can you tell what the carolers are made of?
Artistically flattened (?) pop cans. Fun!
