It was time to trim some branches from my small trees in the back yard. And I remembered seeing this great idea on another parent’s blog about decorating branches. I thought this was a wonderful idea for the kids and I in the back yard on a summer day.
After trimming the tree and picking a pretty branch to decorate, I got the kid’s paint out and let them have fun painting it. I of course had to join the fun too!
After we colored every branch and made a mess, I left the branch out to dry.
Once dried I found a home for it in my lavender’s large planter. Now I’m thinking about all the ornaments we could glue on it next!
