I can’t wait for Christmas! The weather, the hot chocolate, the good food, great friends, it truly is the most wonderful time of the year. Christmas time means a lot of things to me, and it’s a great time to get crafty and make some great Christmas crafts, but we can’t leave the kids out. Whether we’re busy cooking, trying to clean the house for family coming, or just wanting to have some fun, the kids need some fun holiday crafts to make too. We made these 3 Easy Christmas Ornaments For Kids perfect for them to make to pass time and have fun.
DIY Icecicle Ornaments
- Tin Foil
- Blue Glitter
- Blue String
- School Glue
Step One- Lay out a piece of tin foil, and tape a looped piece of string to the top of your piece of tin foil.
Step Two- Now fold the top of your foil, then roll from one side to the other and once you’ve rolled it, mold it with your hands into the shape you want it. The icicles look good when they are pointier at the bottom and get a little wider on the top, but they don’t have to be perfect.
Step Three- Now, paint some school glue onto your icicle and then sprinkle blue glitter as you like then hang to dry before displaying on your Christmas tree!
DIY Candy Cane Ornaments
- Red and White Pony Beads
- Red Pipe Cleaners
Step One- Add beads one color at a time until you’ve reached the end of the pipe cleaner.
Step Two- Now simply bend the two ends so the beads won’t fall off, and bend the whole pipe cleaner into the shape of a candy cane, then they’re ready to hang on the tree!
DIY Melted Crayon Ornaments
- Carrot Peeler
- X-Acto Knife
- Hair Dryer
- Glass Ball Ornaments
Step One- Remove the label and Shave your chosen colors of crayons onto a piece of paper with a carrot peeler.
Step Two- Take the piece of paper and fold it up and pour it into your ball ornament, and place the top back on.
Step Three- Take your hair dryer and heat up the glass so the crayons melt and the colors blend to your liking, then allow them to dry before tying twine on them and hanging them on your tree!
