Crafting Christmas Ornaments with the Kids!

Crafting Christmas ornaments you will cherish and the kids will LOVE!

My daughter and I love to get creative… and get messy! There is something so special about creating holiday ornaments. We often give these adorable gifts to family members as well. We have some great kits available in store and online, but I’ve included some of my favorite DIY ideas below!

DIY SNOWMEN HAND PRINT ORNAMENT

Capture your little one’s hand print in this adorable ornament. Purchase ornament balls, glass or plastic. (PLEASE use caution when using glass ornaments!) Cover your child’s hand in white acrylic paint and have them GENTLY grasp from the bottom of the ornament. Add some dots of white paint as snowfall. Allow pain to dry thoroughly. Then use a marker to make eyes and mouth. Create the nose by either gluing a piece of orange paper or using an orange marker.  Glue cute scarves or hats made of felt, fabric or pipe cleaners to finish them off.  SNOW CUTE!Create a cherished keepsake with the Santa's Handprint Message Ornament | Christmas Crafts with Kids! - SugarBabies Blog

SANTA’S HANDPRINT MESSAGE ORNAMENT

This kit is a classic keepsake to adorn your Christmas tree for years to come. Turn your child’s handprint into cute little snowmen if you wish. Makes a great gift for baby’s first Christmas or a fun holiday craft to do with kids.

Ornament has a secure screw on cap making it easy to add and remove a message to Santa. Kit includes handprint instructions, shatterproof ornament, message to Santa note with specially designed holder, ribbon, non-toxic and child-safe paint, and sponge.
DIY REINDEER THUMB PRINT ORNAMENTS
Create the most adorable reindeer using your little one’s thumb print! Purchase ornament balls, glass or plastic. (PLEASE use caution when using glass ornaments!) Place a small amount of brown acrylic paint on a paper plate and help your child press their thumb into the paint and then onto the ornament.  Allow pain to dry thoroughly.  Then use a marker to make antlers and eyes. Create the nose by either painting a red dot or gluing on a red piece of paper.  RUDOLPH APPROVED!

DIY FROSTED COOKIE CUTTER

This may have been one of the easiest and cutest ornaments we have ever made!!! Purchase a few metal cookie cutters in whatever shape. Pour some white acrylic paint on a paper plate. Have your child place the cookie cutter in the paint then simply turn it over and place on a paper towel or scratch piece of paper and let the paint drip. Add some glitter while it’s drying to give it some sparkle. Once dry, add a ribbon… and DONE! We also hung a sparkly bead in the middle of this snowflake.
