I love a great themed tree and perhaps my favorite is the one that my kids have been working on since they were born. Every year my father buys my twin girls a pair of animal ornaments. Together, they have accumulated ten pairs of animals and that look beautiful when combined on a noah’s arc tree.
The great thing about starting while your kids are young is that you are able to slowly collect special ornaments over a number of years. You kids will know what to expect every year in their stocking because they will get used to receiving a special ornament.
Those first few years you won’t have enough of them to decorate a full-sized Christmas tree but you will quickly have enough to adorn a small artificial tree, such as the four-foot tree that I used here. As the collection continues to grow, you can upgrade it to your larger tree.
While I may favor the simple beauty of our Noah’s Arc Christmas tree, you can certainly collect ornaments in any theme that you like. Here are some additional ideas.
