Kids often want to be involved in all things Christmas. From helping to decorate, baking, and of course giving gifts. There are many people, from teachers to grandparents, that kids would like to give to and the same people would love to receive a handmade gift from their favorite kids. Kid Made Ornaments are great because they don’t take too much time, can usually be done pretty inexpensively, and they will always have a place when Christmas comes again. Or if you’re like my child’s grandparents, they would probably hang it somewhere in their home all year round.
Here are some of our favorite Kid Made Ornaments. They are beautiful and so creative.
