  • FOR BULLETIN BOARDS:
    • Use a sturdy giant sheet of butcher paper
    • GLUE down all decorations (so that when you pick it up, nothing falls off)
  • FOR DOOR Hanger DECORATIONS:
    • Use something no larger than a paper plate. Decorate and leave space to write child's name (staff will do this). 
  • FOR BOTH:
    • Please DO NOT decorate with: 
      • loose tinsel, confetti or glitter
      • food items or candy
      • sharp things: pens, pencils, rulers
      • toy guns or swords
    • Pick a theme that will cover the months that you will be decorating: 
      • Feel free to BE CREATIVE!!! and use of non-conventional decorations to be donated to The Christmas Box House afterwards are fun! (Example: frisbees, soccer/basketballs, books, toys of all kinds, book themes, socks, stuffed animals, etc.)
      • OVERALL GOAL: To encourage children's smiles when they see it! :) Themes that promote healthy living, positive thinking, happiness, cheer, overcoming opposition, courage, imagination, reading..etc. is great!!
