How to create Christmas ornaments that kids can make
Here are 3 fun ways to create this classroom Christmas craft. Then watch the video below to see other ways you can use this fun template!
First, print off your templates. You will have a sheet of shapes and a sheet of circles. Cut as close to the circles as you can and use the X in the center of the shapes as a good place to pinch, snip, and start cutting on the inside.
This should leave you with a circle and a cutout shape for each ornament. It’s OK if there is a bit of ink showing, it won’t on the finished ornament.
Simple Holiday Marker Craft
This is perhaps the easiest way to use the template. Simply let your little one color one of the plain circles with markers, crayons, or colored pencils.
Fine Motor Christmas Ornament
Punch holes out of construction paper or patterned paper scraps. Cover the circle portion of your ornament with glue and add dots!
Scissor Practice Ornament:
We have shown these before, but they are still a favorite! Little ones just love practicing those scissor skills so put those strips to good use! Glue them down so that they cover an entire circle. It’s ok if they go over the edge.
Adding the final touches to your Christmas paper crafts:
Once you have covered the base circle, attach the circle with the shape cut out using a bit of glue. Always glue with the ink side down so there won’t be any black showing.
Trim any edges that hang out past the edge of the circle.
Once your glue is dry punch a hole near the top.
Then add your string!
Don’t forget to write the name of your child and the year onto the back!
