Christmas Paper Bow
Here's a simple cheap way to decorate the Christmas tree. Make red paper bows. It is just strips of red paper taped in the shape of a bow with a thin strip of paper used to hang the bow on the tree. If you don't have red paper on hand, you could try coloring a white piece of paper red with a crayon as I did here.
Even though it is a simple craft, children may like decorating with the bows after they are finished more than making them. After watching you, though, they may all the sudden create bows of their own for their own purposes:)
Here's a link to more detailed directions I wrote over at eHow if you'd like to view it. I find that when I have a number of pictures to use with directions, eHow's publishing format is easier to use.
