CREATIVE CHRISTMAS TREE
How do you decorate a Christmas tree without any decorations?
Tips for parents: challenge kids to think creatively but realistically - no we can't decorate the tree with cats and dogs because they are too heavy, but yes we can use origami, kitchen utensils or colourful socks. This activity is an exercise in 'lateral thinking' which means to solve a problem with a creative approach.
