What better way to rustle up Christmas cheer than with these handmade Christmas ornaments you can make with your children?
Handmade Christmas ornaments may be the best kind of craft you can work on with your child. First, what child doesn’t love Christmas ornaments? I know whenever my children have helped invite guests into our home around the Christmas holiday, they are eager to point to the ornaments on the tree they helped to make.
Second, handmade ornaments add a more personal and homier touch to your Christmas tree. One of my favorite memories as a child was hanging the ornaments my sister and I made as we decorated our tree. Making ornaments with your children can do the same for your child: create a sense of history that you can revisit every Christmas.
And finally, your child’s handmade ornaments make wonderful gifts for grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other relatives.
I’ve rounded up several simple yet fun ornament crafts that you can make with your children. As an added bonus, they’re all very inexpensive to make as well.
Handmade Christmas Ornament Crafts Any Child Can Make
Melted Snowman: This craft is so cute, you won’t believe how easy and quickly it can be made! Nearly everything can be found either in your pantry or very inexpensively at a craft store.
Cinnamon Applesauce Hearts: Your children will love mixing, rolling, shaping, and baking these adorable ornaments.
DIY Crayon Ornaments: These could hardly be easier. Crayons and a hair dryer are really all you need!
DIY Glitter Ornaments: These are almost as easy as the preceding craft. Glitter and floor cleaner — those are your main ingredients!
Children’s Keepsake Ornaments: That’s the name I came up with. These ornaments are absolutely precious and could become treasured keepsakes.
