Toddler Christmas Ornaments


My kiddos love giving gifts.  Last year, Little Miss helped to make ornaments for all her grandparents.  I wanted her to make something original so that it would stand out amidst all the hand prints that already decorated the trees.  We wanted a toddler Christmas ornaments.  After endless Pinterest browsing, I decided to merge two ideas together.

Having ornaments on your tree that your little ones helped create is a must for our families. Every year when you pull them out you will remember when you made them together.

I had found pins using the cookie cutters to shape the perler beads, and I loved the look of putting paper behind a cookie cutter…I just combined the idea!

What you need for your toddler Christmas ornaments:

  • Perler beads.
  • Cookie cutters.
  • Parchment paper.
  • A clear-drying glue.
  • Ribbon.

Making your toddler Christmas ornaments:

We started with some small cookie cutters.

Once she approved of the final product, we popped them in a 400-degree oven for about 10 minutes.
