Organizing Christmas Ornaments

With my daughter now four years old, we learned what great joy she had when I handed her an ornament of her own to hang on our Christmas tree.  Last year we made several ornaments like the snowflake button ornament, salt dough handprints, and this year we made the handmade paper ornaments.  We have some that have been purchased, and others that were made at school or church.  I decided it was time to do something different.  I wanted the children to have a special home for their special ornaments.

This year when we put away our ornaments, I designated each child a nice box.  Their own ornaments will go in their own box.  It's really that simple.  Then next December when we are decorating the tree, I can hand each child their own box and they can have a blast decorating!

What a great idea! I've always just put all of mine in one big box and then thought later I would divide them up for the boys. I'm definitely implementing your suggestion!

Oh, I like the idea of creating special boxes for them. Again, another awesome idea...

Oh, I like the idea of their own box. I might have to do that.

Great idea! I've got to get better about making ornaments with me kids. Our church doesn't have a children's program and we homeschool so all that crafty stuff is up to me. Thanks for sharing a great idea.

I like this idea, too! As I've been staring at the ornaments and Christmas decor still sprawled everywhere in the upstairs hallway...
