{5+5 Fridays} 10 Fun DIY Kids Christmas Ornaments to Create Together

I thought it would be fun this year to start making ornaments with the children to give to their grandparents and other extended family. My oldest daughter is 7, and loves being crafty. She may even spend more time crafting than I do… but that’s only because I surf pinterest have to clean my house. This would be an ideal tradition for her! I did some research to find my favourite ornaments that we could make together, and I decided you might like to see them as well!

10 Fun DIY Kids Christmas Ornaments

1. Li’l Snowman

2.  Tangled Up Rudolph

3. Glittered Cookie Cutters

4. Popsicle Stick Angels

5. Beaded Sparkle Ball

6. Spool Snowmen

7. Handprint Snowmen

8. Thumbprint Rudolph

9. Toilet Paper Roll Poinsettia

10. Embroidery Hoop Snowman

(I know he’s not shown as an ornament, but it would be super cute to make him one with mini hoops, don’t ya think?!)
Which one is your favorite?  I thought for sure we were going to do the thumbprint rudolph, but once I found the Li’l Snowman and the Tangled Up Reindeer, I became very conflicted!  It’s seriously still a toss up.  Guess I will have to let my daughter decide this year!
