Visitors: 182

It's that time of the year when Santa comes home bringing in the joy and a whole lot of gifts. This is also the time when families get together to spend quality time while children of the household eagerly look at the mistletoe for gifts! So, are you stuck for ideas to get that perfect Christmas gift? Fret not, help is here. Right from table decorations, to ornamental things, yummy candies, cookies and greeting cards you can personalize everything with a little help from the art department. Add a little creativity and some love and care to it and you shall wrap up the perfect gift.

Let us make something with cow seeds. Yes, you heard it right! Cow seeds it is! Take a few white objects like jelly beans, marshmallows etc and paint random black spots on them. Now let us make your very own grazing kit. First, plant the cow seeds right side up in a warm location. But be careful, if you plant them the wrong direction you will get cows that hang upside down! Now, we do not want to gift that, do we? Next step: Wait patiently for your cows to grow. In the meanwhile you can do other Christmas preparations, like bake a yummy cake perhaps! Oh, while you are busy eating the cake, do not forget to water these seeds. Voila, your own herd of cows is ready to moo for you.

Okay, so you are not a cow person. Then we have just the perfect solution for you! The Fishing Kit! All you need is a small packet of peas and you are good to go. Follow instructions for a fun Christmas. Just sprinkle some peas on the surface of the water body and wait patiently. When the fishes come to take a ‘P', you can get them. If you grabbed a few, you are a pro; if you did not then you are probably too slow!

Okay, so you are not much of a fish person either, worry not. Here is a simpler way to have a colorful Christmas: making colorful cut-out dolls using construction paper. Just cut out dolls from a folded construction paper and make ends meet! And there you go; you made yourself a circle of colorful dolls. If you can never get your kids to do household chores, then here is a game that you ought to play with them. Cut out small colorful rectangular bits of paper and write messages like “Water the plants and find a surprise at your bedroom door tonight" or maybe “make some Christmas cookies and I'll make your day special with a surprise gift. " This will definitely motivate your child do all the household chores, and without protest too!

If you think none of the above ideas are going to work with your children, then the best suggestion would be to buy him or her, a nice greeting card with a personal message written on it. There is no way someone can fail with a card!

Such a joyous occasion as Christmas, is most special to children. It instills in them rich values and a sense of oneness. The undying Christmas spirit is very close to the heart of any child, when he or she awaits not just gifts but also visits from loving aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents, and most importantly Santa Claus. In order to make this Christmas perfect for your children log into and get amazing tips and gain insight into how to make Christmas as special as possible for children.
