A Tree for the Fridge

I simply love the idea of having children involved in family happenings, and at Christmas, the tree is a big "happening".  Sadly, little ones aren't usually allowed to be extremely involved in that.  I have said too many times this month, "You can look with your eyes, but don't touch with your hands."  I think having a tree for children is a great idea, but while they aren't old enough to put real ornaments on, it should be tailored to their littleness.  You may remember last year when I made A Tiny Tree for Tiny Hands.  I was surprised when I saw this at Target the other day.
Guess they thought it was a good idea, too.

Well, this year, my little guy thinks that the tree I made him last year, is a hat.  So, this year, I made him his own tree for the fridge.
 It was pretty simple to do.  I cut the tree out of construction paper.  It took several pieces and segments taped together, but pretty easy, nonetheless.  Then, I cut shapes out of scrapbook paper, and put them on magnet sheets (If you make one yourself, make sure the "ornaments" are big enough that they are not a choking hazard, and don't use small magnets, as they are a choking hazard. Use magnet sheets like this).

That's it.  Now he can decorate his own tree!
What a cutie!
