For this final post on Christmas decoration DIY for toddlers, my daughter and I teach you how to create paper Christmas ornaments what you can use for your very own Christmas tree. It’s very simple to do and very apt for toddlers. All you need is this Christmas tree template https://openclipart.org/detail/2182/christmas-tree-icon, scissors, board paper, ribbon or string and materials that you can use to decorate the tree. We used markers for decorating the trees.
Here is our video! Hope you like it!
So in this video, my daughter basically says things that she wants to say about creating paper Christmas ornaments. She loves speaking in front of the camera. People think that it’s us who’s pushing her to create all these videos on Youtube, but it’s all her. In fact, I have a backlog of all of the videos I need to edit. I can’t keep up with this little girl.
Fellow moms ask me (in the doctor’s clinic, at the mall) how did my daughter become so outspoken and “biba”. I guess our secret (but not really a secret) is that we treat her like an independent adult. We encourage her to make choices. We, as parents, can only pave the way for her to learn things and to make her journey as safe as possible. We can choose things like her vitamins (I use Propan TLCbecause it has Lysine that maintains her appetite, Taurine for brain development and creativity, and Chlorella Growth Factor and Vitamin D to boost height and for stronger bones), how she learns (school, homeschool, etc.), but we can let them choose which dress to wear, what activity to do, etc.
Since they are kids, we think that they are not capable. They are! Believe me when I say that I can think of more than a dozen times when my daughter has surprised me.
So if you want an independent child, train them to make choices for themselves! It really works!
Christmas is just around the corner and so are family reunions and seeing relatives whom we haven’t seen for the longest time. With these celebrations, even if we try to avoid them, we will hear a lot of “observations” (under judging stares) from people around us. We will hear a lot of advice from other who think they know more that we do as parents.
I have been a victim of this and sometimes, these statements make me doubt myself.
In my family, kids being chubby meant that they were getting the proper nutrition. Now here is where the observations come in. Ever since she was a baby, my daughter never grew chubby or fat, so in the eyes of some people, they think she’s unhealthy. Proudly, I would say that my daughter has never gotten gravely ill. We give healthy food to eat, ask her to sleep early during the weekdays, and we give her vitamins like Propan TLC that contains ingredients that help her stay healthy (Propan TLC contains Lysine and B-Vitamins to help boost and maintain appetite, 100% RENI Vitamin C for stronger immunity and Vitamin D to boost height and for stronger bones).
I think I am doing pretty darn well as a mom, and I am sure you are, too! Be confident and take their advice and observations with a grain of salt.
Today, we will share another Christmas decoration DIY for Toddlers activity that I did together with my little girl. We wanted to create our own DIY ribbons for a gift, but unfortunately, we didn’t get to make one. We still had fun though wrapping the gift for her cousin Noah together. She was excited to tie the ribbon of the gift.
Here is the link to our video! Hope you like it!
That’s it for today’s Christmas countdown and sharing another activity for Christmas decoration DIY for Toddlers. Aside from that, never doubt yourself as a mom. I’m sure all of us are trying to be the best mom that we could be. We all want what’s best for our child and that is all that matters!
When I look at my daughter, I am amazed at how big she is. Earlier today, I was reading articles about nutrition for toddlers. It was not because she was sick; it was because I am sick. I, as a mom, wanted to know what I was doing right, and I think it was because I have been giving her the right vitamins apt for toddlers.
Since I feel that she is growing up too fast, I have been very hands-on lately on my role as a parent. I have been scouting the net for activities for toddlers. My daughter has been so active lately that I have been looking for ways for her to keep busy and to learn, too. I love though that she has been active and healthy (it might be the Propan TLC vitamins that I am giving her). Propan TLC contains Lysine to help boost and maintain her appetite and 100% RENI Vitamin C for stronger immunity. I’ve noticed that she doesn’t get sick and even with the change in weather, she hardly catches a cold. This takes out the burden of worrying about sickness! Going back, since Christmas is coming, I have been searching for Christmas Decoration DIY for Toddlers on the internet.
I found a few things that we will share with you, so that you can also do it with your toddler. But for today’s post, it’s about creating that ambiance that exudes the Christmas spirit. I know that I said Christmas decoration DIY for toddlers, but just for today, I will share with you a simple (although not too DIY) activity that you can do.
My daughter loves surprises in general — whether it be us surprising her or she surprising her dad or me. We normally put up Christmas decorations on the first week of December, but this year, we started early. We started early because my daughter saw these cute reusable glass stickers in a store. I bought it because I knew it would be a great activity for bonding.
Here is the video that we have for this activity! I hope you like it!
For the family to get the most out of celebrating during this season, having an ambiance that encourages happiness and an environment of Giving. During this season, we can teach our kids the value of generosity. We can teach them that the celebration is not only about decorations, gifts, and eating, but it’s a time when we can truly show each other how much we value them.
