How to Add More Green to Your Winter Holiday Preparations

When the holidays approach, I am the first to sing along with Bing Crosby. You know the line - I'm dreaming of a White Christmas, just like the ones I used to know. Where the treetops glisten, and children listen to hear sleigh bells in the snow.

If you have a small tree in the office you can use colored, golden and silver paperclips to make chains to wrap around the branches. No waste as you can use the clips again afterwards.

You can also make a triangular would-be tree using different colored and sized bottle tops piled up in rows, the biggest at the bottom (open side downwards lying flat) getting smaller as you go up and reducing the width gradually till you end in a point with a single bottle top. It a takes a while but a child will be happily employed for a while doing this. Its quite stable too unless bumped and the tops can be recycled later.
