20 Christmas Ornaments and Decorations to Do with Grandchildren
Not only is it FUN but you have a keepsake that you can use year after year. Here are 20 adorable keepsake ornaments that you can make with your grandchildren.
A holiday tradition of ours is to get together and have an ornament making party. We pick an ornament or decoration to make and we make enough for everyone.
The goal is not to have perfect ornaments or decorations. The goal is to have fun as a family and create amazing memories!
One year we made salt dough ornaments that we cut out with cookie cutters, baked, and painted. Another year, we made foot prints in salt dough and painted them to look like Olaf.
We’ve done cloves in oranges–that’s a good one. Last year, I tried melted crayons in glass balls. They are pretty but probably not the best to do with children.
