Barbara from a Life in Balance has a few great blog posts about Christmas ornaments kids can make.

  • First Barbara has an Ironed Contact Paper Ornament. This ornament was inspired by a trip to Longwood Gardens for their Christmas display.
  • These paper star ornaments are a good craft for ages 8 and up. These ornaments require detailed folding to get the points of the stars to come out correctly.
  • Barbara’s final ornament,  cinnamon applesauce ornaments will scent your kitchen as you make them. They’re perfect for ages 3 and up, just be prepared to have a snack on hand. All those yummy smells might make the kids hungry.
