A Chain of Belief
Sandra says that when she was a little girl, she and her sisters made paper chains to hang on the tree and the mantel in their home. They took different colored construction paper and cut strips the same width, then taped them together to make a chain.
An artful way to approach this fabulous project is to cut the strips of brightly colored paper, but before you link them all together, invite family and friends to write on them a message, a quote, a wish, a thought, a word or something that they believe or hold dear. Once you assemble this beautiful garland, you will have a chain of beliefs to share in your home. This activity, and the resulting beautiful decoration, will indeed put the "happy" in "happy holidays."
