ORNAMENTS KIDS CAN MAKE

There is nothing sweeter during the holiday season than hanging ornaments kids can make on the Christmas tree.

Some of my favorite holiday decorations are ornaments kids can make. Creating art that can be hung on a Christmas tree can be a fun way to spend time together as a family during the holidays.

From filling plastic globes to painting tin foil ornaments, there are so many ways to create homemade ornaments for kids. We've included some of our favorite ideas below, and you can also check out our Homemade Ornaments series on YouTube for even more!
