Christmas Ornaments For Kids To Make
One of my favorite holiday family traditions is that my kiddos create an ornament and give it to grandparents, aunts, and uncles. I love the look on my kids’ faces as they create their ornaments.
They love each step because they know that they will be giving them as gifts. My daughter has already asked what we’ll be making this year. She loves to choose the craft and helps all the way through wrapping the gift.
