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.
Making your toddler Christmas ornaments:
We started with some small cookie cutters.
Look how clean this shot is….
You will need to help your little one keep the cookie cutter steady. I tried taping them down, but it didn’t work as well as my fingers. (side note…these pictures are a year old…look at her little hands!!!!)
Once she approved of the final product, we popped them in a 400-degree oven for about 10 minutes.
