Getting the house ready for Christmas last year was different - my little peanut wasn't crawling or walking, so none of my decorations got "touched". Fast forward 12 months and I suddenly have a little helper that wants to rearrange EVERYTHING that I put out:)
Recently I decided to make my daughter her very own Christmas tree that she could rearrange to her heart's content! I am SO glad that I did - it has so far been a HUGE hit! I got the idea from here but see below for my version.
I started out with buy about a 1/2 yard of green felt from Joann's, but ended up only using about 1/2 of it. I folded the felt in half hand-drew one side of the tree with a black marker. I cut out both so that the tree with end up being symmetrical (not that my two year old would know the difference).
I stuck my tree up on my wall with Command Damage free poster strips. I placed one strip in each corner and a few on the bottom - I used the whole package of 12.
I also added a "trunk" for the tree - made of brown felt.
Next I cut out a yellow star for the top (yellow felt) and a bunch of felt "ornaments" in different colors. I used a glass to trace the circles.
Since felt sticks to felt that is all you need to do.
My little peanut decorated...
... and re-decorated all day long.
