Children love to make garland for your tree. They can make it from a number of components. Stringing popcorn is an age old favorite, but you can string cranberries, round cereals, beads. One of my favorite garlands that I put on my banister each year, is made from the beads off an old wooden bead car seat cover. We snipped away until all the beads were in the bucket, and then strung them all together on cotton string. Look around your home for items that will make a garland. I have seen the tiny pinecones (about 1 to 1 ½ inches) twisted on a length of wire, a garland for the fireplace or windowsill.
