Christmas Kids Craft: Homemade Snowflake Ornaments

Snowflake Ornaments: Easy Christmas Kids CraftThe trees are up in the kids bedrooms and they are ornament obsessed! They decorate their bedrooms trees with homemade ornaments each year and have been asking to make more ornaments since we made our angel ornaments last week.  So yesterday we made popsicle stick snowflake ornaments!

Snowflake Ornament Kids Craft with Popsicle Sticks

We started by gluing three craft sticks on top of each other (above) to form the snowflake shape.  We used these funky shaped ones we had leftover from making mini bow and arrows.

 So, after they painted the snowflakes we added lots of silver glitter!

    One of our traditions is making ornaments not only for our tree but for our close family members as well. We have made some really cool ones over the years.

      Makes it so much more meaningful! Although at the rate we are going times 3 I am wondering if the grandparents are going to need multiple trees too!
