- The list of 50 decorative items was whittled down to bare essentials like colored pastel sheets, photo papers, stick-on labels, satin ribbons, colored pencils and crayons, markers, paint palette, glue, glitter, sparkles, stickers and rub ons, creative embellishments, and other craft essentials.
- Our plan was to make small Christmas themed goody boxes to woo the kids, thus we narrowed down classic, free printable templates from the Internet to meet this requirement.
- I then downloaded the chosen templates to my personal computer and smartphone. This home printer from HP allows seamless printing through Wi-Fi, which I think is a huge enabler. Both Rishab and Saanvi were excited to learn about the nitty-gritties of the printing technique and even shot a few videos to show their joy.
- Once the printing was done with, the printouts were cut, folded, and glued as per the instructions.
- The goody boxes surpassed our expectations in terms of design and aesthetics. We then filled each box with Christmas candies, and voila, the boxes were ready to be placed adjacent to the Christmas tree.
- We used green pastel sheets to design the tree. The decorations were done using stone embellishments, stickers and rub ons. Similar colored pastel sheets were also used as origami to create the snowflakes.
- The teddy adorning a red Santa cap and the bulldog all decked up as Rudolph, the red nosed reindeer. What better occasion to use the children's stuffed toys than Christmas! Served as the perfect props for our secret, magical corner.
- Last but not the least, we even purchased a small Christmas tree from the local market to place the candy boxes around it. To jazz things up a bit, we decorated the walls using satin ribbons and printouts of our favorite Christmas characters.
