WHY HAVE I NOT THOUGHT ABOUT THIS? Curtain Rod as Stocking Holder - purchase two-three stocking hangers and a lightweight curtain rod. Hang the stockings from the curtain rod instead of using multiple stocking hangers.
Great Advent idea: fill 25 little bags with ornaments and a bible verse about Christ birth. Everyday (starting Dec let child open a bag and hang an ornament on the tree and teach them about the story of Jesus' birth.
Idea for the kids on Christmas morning - crepe paper the door to their rooms . then they have to break out in the morning by busting through the crepe paper. Can also do for birthdays (decorate living area with balloons and crepe paper too).
Can't help but think there must be a great way to use this in the classroom. I'm thinking large felt Christmas balls with 2 beat rhythm patterns on them! Large Felt Christmas Tree - keep kids entertained for hours decorating and redecorating.
