Family Bonding Christmas Ideas

By: Barbara Thorp

This Christmas, why not spend this time together with your family and strengthen your family bond with something new?. Instead of just playing games, why dont create a project where everyone in your family and even the neighbours can join in? Get everyone to chip in ideas and decorate your home for christmas. 

Christmas Bonding Ideas with Family

1) Interior Christmas Decorating

Construct a lovely setting to put the Nativity scene.
Make it the centre of attention and place candles of different heights around it. Either hang a big golden star over the top, or if you haven't the facilities for that, then place it on a piece of strong wire, make a base with the wire by turning the bottom portion into a ring so that the star can be seen at the rear of the Nativity scene.

All you need is an enthusiastic family with loads of ideas and energy and you will have your home interior Christmas decorating done in no time at all and, the best thing of all, it won't cost much, and you will all have a great time.

You can get them to make lots of bows, big and small colourful 'Christmassy' ribbon, bright red and green ribbons and clear sparkling ribbons. Adding fake snow on the windows is great too. 

Use safety pins and attach the fake snow to the curtains, cushions and all over the house. Don't forget the bathroom, kitchen, and dining room either. The children will love doing their bedrooms, so make sure to buy lots of tinsel. Hang pretty ornaments from curtains, on picture hooks and anywhere you want to make your home look bright and beautiful.

2) Outdoor Christmas Decoration

Dont just decorate the outside of your home for Christmas. Make it a family bonding time. Announce your plan to everyone, give them a budget each and get them to do some research online for the themes they have in mind. You can make it simple, or you can make it as convoluted as you will allow your imagination and budget to run. You will be amazed at how fun this can be.

With so many styles to choose from, there is no excuse for having a dowdy house front over the Christmas period.

Even tiny tots can enjoy making their own decorations to go on display in the front garden. If you are crafty then you will find many uses for cardboard rolls, tin foil stars, plastic bells, spray painted in the traditional colours of green, red, and gold, and hung on string or wire as a garland. Striped candy canes can be hung in bushes and trees and the children can cut out gold stars and hang them from branches as well. Let their little minds run wild and you will be surprised with the ideas. 

Once this project is completed, your entire family will have an swesome time looking at their own decoration. From coloured lights flashing, Santa's sleigh, and reindeer cruising. A nice house will also initiate bonding between neighbours. It is a fanstatsic conversation starter. 

Good luck with the christmas bonding with family
