This Balla idea is very beautiful, and it is not only a game for them, but also serves as a Christmas decoration, for the Nativity scene or to put anywhere in the home. You only need some boxes, some toy reindeer, strings, and some tweezers to put the numbers. In each box, there is a surprise, which you can unwrap depending on the day. Come on, they are going to love these toys and they will have a great time looking for a gift every day.
The most classic Christmas decoration renovated
Here we have a small selection of Christmas trees and a DIY Nativity scene that you are going to love. If you have tired of always putting the same thing at home, the same tree with lights and colored balls, which no longer tells you anything, give it all a twist and reinvent it. Doing new and creative things is another way to bring out our inner child, and the little ones will love helping you get the materials and assemble everything. What do you think of that Christmas tree made with balloons and garlands? It’s the happiest thing we’ve ever seen. The whole family will be infected with the festive and joyful atmosphere that it exudes, and it has nothing to do with the usual.
Gather all the corks from the bottles you use at home because you will no longer have to spend anything else on the Nativity scene. This idea is super fun, and you can teach children to create characters with a few simple corks. Surely this craft for children will seem very funny and entertaining.

And then what you include in the rest of the tree is up to you and your little ones. Felt crafts, a toy, or an ornament that they especially like.
