10 Easy DIY Christmas Ornaments to Make With Your Kids
Looking for DIY Christmas Ornaments you can make with your kids? Look no further! Get ready to get glittery!
Next week all 4 kids will be home. If everything works out as planned, I’ll have the majority of the week off and we can get crafting. We have had our Christmas tree up for a while, but just now got our ornaments down. By far, my favorite Christmas ornaments are the handmade ones.
10 Kid Friendly DIY Christmas Ornaments
Crack out the glue and glitter and let’s DIY with the kids. Here are 10 different kid DIY Christmas ornaments for you and your littles to make.
Mom Tip: Before making Christmas ornaments with the kids – or any other craft, put down a cheap plastic tablecloth. I stock up on these every time we go to the Dollar Tree. This helps make clean-up easy and simple, just gather up the plastic tablecloth and throw away! This especially is helpful if glitter is involved. Now the floor? I guess you could cover the floors in plastic tablecloths as well, but other than that, you are on your own for advice on that mess!
