Christmas Ornament Craft

Kinder Christmas Ornament Craft


Here’s a super easy, fun craft project to create with your little ones. They would make a cute Christmas card or perhaps even a thank-you note. Just trace the bottoms of any plastic container onto a piece of white paper. You can use card stock or a similar weighted paper. You’ll need it heavy enough to hold the embellishments but not too thick for little hands to cut through.

Trace and cut as many “ornaments” as you would like and provide the kids with paint, glitter, glue, yarn buttons and sequins.

Here’s a breakdown of the steps:

Trace circles onto white construction paper or card stock. Draw a tab (small square) for the ornament top and cut entire piece out.

Paint ornament with various colored paint. I love the metallic tempera paint but regular tempera is great, too.

Use glue to add craft rhinestones and sequins and glitter.

Add a pre-tied yarn or ribbon bow with a dab or white glue.

Glue onto paper (construction paper, greeting card, etc.)

Teacher Tip: I used a colored sheet of 12″ x 9″ paper as their table protector and they used the same paper to “carry” their completed ornaments to the drying rack. Then, after the pieces dried, I turned the paper over, glued on the ornaments and wrote their names in silver pen.
Brilliant use of paper, I think!
