Christmas Craft | Kids Craft | Glitter Ornament Using Clear Plastic Bulbs

I saw this kind of craft long time ago and thought I'd posted it but I guess not. Yesterday my grandson made his 1st Christmas craft ornament. I had him use watered down glue and although it looks pretty I think I'll use what she used in her tutorial at The Ornament Girl. So now my grandson will have to make some more! I just love the way she decorated the outside of the ornament too!


If you'd like to try your hand at making these pretty glitter ornaments using clear plastic bulbs then click on the link below for the tutorial. And further down I show my grandson making his glitter ornaments. He Loved it!!!

Christmas Craft | Kids Craft | Mini Present Ornament

Here's an idea from Red Ted Art for a fun Christmas Kids Craft, wrapping mini present ornaments. Collect all the little boxes you can than wrap away. In this project they made their own wrapping paper. An additional fun project for your child to make.




An idea! You can wrap money inside the small box, a piece of jewelry, or any small gift and hang it on the tree :)))

Christmas Craft | Kids Craft | Button Wreath Ornament

This looks like a lot of fun! Even if you don't have a lot of buttons on hand you can always buy some that are on sale pretty cheap. Just think of it as arts and craft supplies for your children.



Fill up a bowl with different buttons and let them string the buttons with your supervision. This is not only great for their self esteem it's also great for eye hand coordination and motor skills.


Watch their face light up when they see their creation hanging on the Christmas tree!

This is a great idea for a Christmas craft to do with our children. Let them do the filling in of the plastic ornaments. You can give them choices making sure all their choices are safe and Christmasy.





Here she chose white ribbon for the Santa ornament and brown ribbon for the reindeer. Sometimes the simplest way is the best especially when thinking about little hands.

Christmas Craft | Kids Craft | Child's Handprint Santa Ornament



I'll say this over and over again, I Love any kind of craft using my grandson's handprint :))) and here's one that I can even have my 1 year old grandson take part in!

It's the memory and the treasure when they're all grown up and they can see their little tiny hand that I think is so neat!

Christmas Craft | Kid's Craft | Feather Angel Tutorial



Ever wanted to decorate your tree with all Christmas ornaments your children make? I do. Except it'll be with Christmas ornaments my children made when they were little and add to it, Christmas ornaments made by my 2 grandsons :)


My daughters both made their own Christmas ornaments when they were little. My oldest daughter would take Christmas coloring books, color the pictures, cut them out and put an ornament hanger through it and I'd use it ever single year until she decided to have a more "grown up" tree since my children were all older.


Now that she has 2 sons of her own, 4 and 1 years old she wants a tree more for her babies and I don't mind at all. I Love all kinds of trees.


This is one ornament that's easy enough for my grandson to craft and it's so pretty!
