10 Homemade Christmas Decorations for Kids to Make

Inside: 10 homemade Christmas decorations that kids can make.

I love Christmas. It’s absolutely the best ever holiday! And one of the things I love best is quality time spent with my children – baking, decorating the tree and the gingerbread house, and making new decorations to hang on our tree.

Ours is certainly NOT a perfectly co-ordinated, stylized tree. It’s a tree filled with family memories and a whole lot of love. There are ornaments from our travels, from treasured friends and family members, even ornaments I made myself as a child. And now, there are those that my children make.

If you have children who love to craft then this collection of 10 homemade Christmas decorations for kids to make is a great place to start. It includes ideas that are simple enough for toddlers and preschoolers to create, as well as more challenging projects for school age kids.
