Create memories with your grandchildren by decorating mini Christmas trees together for the dining table.

Doing different and enjoyable Christmasy activities with your grands each year encourages them to look forward to coming to Grandma’s and Grandpa’s house every year.

Let the Grands Decorate the Big Tree

Set the big tree up, and let your grand littles do all the decorating. What’s more fun – decorating your own tree with ornaments perfectly placed or enjoying your grandchildren’s eyes sparkle as they get to decorate the tree?

The Comfort Food – Chicken

Of course, there always has to be food – and chicken. It’s the best comfort food. You can even make it Christmasy with some red and green. Cut each sandwich into four triangles just for fun.
