Kid Made Ornaments for Christmas

December 7, 2019

This holiday season get the kids involved in decorating the tree and crafting up fun with these kid-made ornaments for Christmas. I have gathered some ideas that will work for kids of a variety of ages. From handprint ornaments for little ones to ornaments that are works of art, from an old pizza box!

These ideas are so much fun to make, display and share. These kid-made ornaments require basic supplies you might already have on hand to create fantastic ornaments for your tree. If the urge to craft with the kids arises, you can use this collection to make a dozen different designs!
