35 DIY Ornaments to Make with Kids

35 DIY Christmas ornaments for kids to make. Perfect ornaments to trim your tree or to give as xmas gifts!

One of my absolute favorite things about the holidays is trimming our Christmas tree.

I love revisiting with each ornament!

The homemade ornaments from my childhood are especially my favorite.


They make me laugh every year!

When my husband and I first got married, our parents passed on a few of our creations to us.

Making ornaments is a perfect activity to do as a family during the holidays – and the creations will stay with your kids into their adulthood!
