I know it might be a little late in the blogging world to put out another Christmas post, but I couldn’t help myself. There was no way I could save these fun nature kid’s ornaments we made until next year! There is even a great fine motor toddler activity built in too!
Now we have already brought you a fun DiY Ornament you can do yourself or with older kids. We have also given you a really fun Ornament for your toddlers to make…This one fits somewhere in the middle!
Supplies for you nature Kid’s Ornament:
- Sticks -the amount depends on design
- Hot glue, and a glue gun.
- Pipe Cleaners -You can sub in yarn or another style of string.
Creating your Nature Kid’s Ornament:
Step One: Get Outside!! Send your little ones out to find the perfect sticks for the project. Now this might take a while so bundle up and enjoy the fresh air! If they are wet let them dry before moving on.
Step Two: Pick out what shape you would like to do. We made a J & V also a Tree and Star. The tree was a happy accident when we started decorating our V.
Step Three: Glue the sticks into your shape. Play around with your plan. Have some sticks hang over one another.
Step Four: Glue the ends of the pipe cleaners to the end of your sticks. Create a Loop to hang it on the tree when done. Pass off to your kiddos, let them wrap the pipe cleaner around the sticks however they want!
Use Your Nature Kid’s Ornament for a Fine Motor Activity:
If you have a toddler encourage them to wrap and unwrap the shape multiple times with the pipe cleaners.They will increase their fine motor skills and enjoy creating a beautiful ornament they can hang on the tree.
