A simple and affordable DIY kids craft is paper tube ornaments! This kid friendly ornaments project does need parent supervision as scissors and glue are needed.
DIY Kid Friendly Ornaments
What you’ll need to make kid friendly ornaments:
- Paper tubes
- Acrylic Paint and brushes
- Glue (you can use a hot glue gun or tacky glue)
- Spray Adhesive
You can get really creative with these kid friendly ornaments! Let your little ones paint the tubes whatever colors they would like. Then, parents, cut the tubes horizontally at about ¾” to 1” strips. You’ll then pinch the sides of the tubes to make a leaf-like shape out of the cut tube. Assemble the different shapes into a snowflake, poinsettia, or any fun design your kiddo likes! And, finally, glue the pieces into place.
Crafting Tip: If using a wet glue like Tacky Glue, paper clips can help keep the shape while your glue dries.</p?
If you would like to jazz up your ornament with glitter, spray it with adhesive then shake your glitter all over your ornament.
You can also take your leaf shapes and fold them in half. By placing a folded piece inside of a leaf shape you can add more dimension to the ornament!
