A Christmas Craft for Preschoolers

Posted Jun 10 2009 12:19am

Yesterday my younger kids made the cutest little ornaments. They made them at our homeschool co-op, so I can not take credit for the idea. Thanks to their art teacher! They are simple, and I thought I'd share them with you.

1. Fold a piece of paper in half. They used construction paper, but I imagine card stock would work nicely too.

2. Trace a circle about half an inch from the fold.

3. Cut in a small tab to the circle by making two cuts. Then cut around the circle. When it is cut out you should have something that kind of looks like a pair of glasses.

4. Let the child decorate one side of the paper with sequins, glitter, or whatever you desire.

5. Take a photo of the child, and cut the picture just slightly smaller than the paper circle.

6. Fold the paper so the two circles are on top of each other.

7. Glue your child's picture on the inside of the ornament.

8. Add a small piece of ribbon, tied to make the ornament hanger. You may want to add the year somewhere on the ornament for future reference.

9, Hang on the tree. Enjoy!

We will be keeping these for ourselves, but they would make a wonderful child made gift for grandparents. For more great holiday ideas see Scribbit's Holiday Bazaar.
