Kids can make bright and cheery Christmas ornaments with paper and contact paper following our easy directions.
My little toddler is not the careful crafter that my daughter is becoming, so crafts with him need to be simple, fast, with lots of creative freedom. This craft was perfect because it was all of those things, but also could be intricate and structured. My son did a little sprinkle, and a little pat, and his Christmas ornament craft was done. While my daughter placed each sparkle on her ornament carefully to create a pretty pattern. So no matter what the age of your kids, this craft will be perfect!
I like using contact paper because it’s easy for kids to stick things to without making a sticky mess with glue. It also lets light shine through, making the ornament look extra lovely on the Christmas tree.
