When we’re decorating the Christmas tree each year, my absolute favorite things to hang up with the kids are ornaments they made themselves, whether it’s ornament crafts they made at school or Christmas artwork they made right at home.
They are my most treasured keepsakes, and the whole family can’t wait to see them year after year. The kids just love pulling old ornaments out of the box they made when they were younger or hanging up ornaments they made just recently.
I have a feeling I’m not the only one who enjoys this tradition, so I couldn’t wait to put together this collection of some of my favorite homemade Christmas ornaments for kids to make. I hope it inspires you to get creative this holiday season with your kids or students!
