6 DIY Kids Christmas Ornaments Roundup

I have made a few different Christmas ornaments with my kids, and we love to create fun memories together. Christmas traditions and memories are important to make with your kids. It is something that your kids will remember for a long time to come. They will hopefully make them with their own families one day as well. Let’s not talk about our kids growing up that fast though. It goes too fast as it is.

I have put together a little round up of great DIY Kids Christmas Ornaments for you. I have included a couple of the ones that I have made with my kids as well. When we decorated the tree this year my 4 year old and I talked about the times we made these ornaments. It was great to look back on these times with her.

I have 6 fun and easy activities that any kid could make along with their mom or dad to of course make Christmas memories.
