In the first grade our oldest son made a Christmas tree chain with red, green and white pieces of construction paper. It was about two feet long when he brought it home that year. We hung it from a little shelf that year.
The next year around Christmas time he worked on his chain some more. He did this almost every year until high school. His Christmas tree chain hung in the living room... on all four walls with some extra placed in the entryway just two years ago!! I had to find a large enough box to store it in without crushing any of the chains.
