A Fun Christmas Craft for Kids

This year our goal is to make most of our tree ornaments ourselves. Its becoming our new family tradition.  Not sure if we will finish by Christmas but for sure I’m having fun!

You can check out our other ideas on how best to enjoy the true meaning of Christmas as a family.

We also have a free Family Christmas printable checklist, see it here: Thoughtful Holidays.

I hope to enjoy the ornaments our kids make every Christmas Season.

To make the ornament you can use any color of yarn you have on hand. We had green but I think the more colorful the better.
