10 Christmas Ornaments Kids Can Craft + Cash Giveaway!

Do you have one of those perfectly decorated trees like the ones at the mall? I LOVE those trees, they are so pretty! Our tree looks nothing like that, but still, I wouldn’t have it any other way because each ornament means something to me, especially the ones the kids make! I love watching them grow each year with hand or fingerprint designs and you can see their crafting abilities unfold and expand as the years go on! So we have a bit of a mish mash tree, some pretty balls, ornaments collected on our travels, stuff the kids made. It’s a bit of a puzzle but it’s our puzzle and our story and that’s what makes it special to us!

Looking for some fun ideas to craft up with the kids and hang on your tree this year? I’ve rounded up some really cute ideas to get you started!
