Just like the holidays are here. Christmas music is playing, and homes are filled with family and friends. The next time you need something to keep the kids busy try one of these homemade ornaments.
While you cook the turkey and prepare for a Thanksgiving meal, the kids are usually bored. I find mine often asking for food before dinner is ready, or generally getting underfoot. Preparing activities in advance for the kids will help keep you on top of things in the kitchen.
You could even set up a homemade ornaments table. All season long keep it stocked with different items the kids can use to create holiday decorations for the tree.
Start out with these fun 5 homemade ornaments. These are easy for the kids and need little to no adult supervision. When they are done you have a masterpiece to enjoy year after year.
5 Homemade Ornaments for Kids
Holiday HandPrints from A Day In Motherhood are a great keepsake. Years from now when your kids are moved out with families of their own, this ornament will bring back memories of their childhood.
Homemade Spice Ornaments from My Joy-Filled Life remind me of the ornaments we made as kids. Classics never go out of style. The scents from these spice ornaments will add the perfect touch, especially if you go for the fake trees.
Pinecone Elf Ornament from A Day In Motherhood is just the most adorable addition to any Christmas tree. Kids can have fun picking their elf’s colors, and with a little adult help on the glue gun, are fast to put together.
Quick Handmade Ornament using Nail Polish from Unexpected Elegance while can be made by kids – her 6 and 8 years old did it – add a bit more elegance than your normal kids’ ornaments. I’m in love and want a whole tree full of these.
Easy Decoupage Santa’s Sleigh Map Ornament from Gym Craft Laundry is the last, and one of my favorites. Anything that incorporates maps speaks to me. The addition of the sleigh and reindeer bring out the whimsical feel of the season.
