One of the things that I adore about the holiday season is taking out the Christmas decorations and placing them on the tree. Reminiscing about each and every one of them, especially the kid-made Christmas ornaments. The boys love talking about the ornaments they have made previously and which year they made them. Christmas ornaments that Children have made are the most precious ones and even if they do not match your tree you could give them a small tree all of their own!
Each year we add to our stash of kid-made Christmas ornaments and we also love gifting them to family, friends and teachers on an annual basis. We made DIY snowman fingerprint ornaments and many Christmas Tree ornaments as a family. You can see all of our kid-made Christmas ornaments here. Yes, I am hooked on Christmas Crafts.
I am delighted to share with you a super selection of Christmas ornaments that children can make. There really is something for children of all ages, from your tiny tots to teenagers.
