Kid-Friendly Holiday Ornament Craft

A perfect cold weather activity, making your own holiday crafts is a great way to get kids excited for the special season!

Crafting is almost as essential to the holiday season as baking is.  One classic Christmas craft kids of all ages will enjoy is fashioning Christmas ornaments out of Popsicle sticks. Make it a tradition; kids will love looking back at ornaments made in years past. 

Tools:

Popsicle sticks, variety of sizes

Strong scissors to trim the Popsicle sticks

Glue gun (or white glue)

Paint

Paintbrushes

Directions:

1. Lay out Popsicle sticks in desired style (think Christmas trees, snowmen, snowflakes, gingerbread men, etc.)

2. Trim popsicle sticks accordingly

3. Glue sticks together and allow ample time to dry depending on gluing method

4. Glue an extra Popsicle stick lengthwise on the back for reinforcement

5. Paint and decorate

6. Tie string or wire to hang on your tree for a truly personalized look
