Homemade Ornaments

Putting the ornaments on the tree with little ones is always challenging.  My favorite part of a rather stressful event is remembering where we bought or who gave us each ornament.  We have ornaments from past vacations, ornaments celebrating each of our babies 1st Christmas', and then we have a slew of hand-made ornaments that I have kept over the years.

Another ornament to add to the tree is a fun way to help your child learn and recognize the letters in his/her name.  And if you have older ones, the ornament turns into a fun game of I SPY!

Christmas Ornament Kids Can Make


Supplies:

This I SPY Name Recognition Ornament can either be put together by you (the parent/ caregiver), by the child, or both!  It'll be a lovely afternoon of sneaking in letter recognition with a festive Christmas flair.

Set out the supplies and encourage your child to sort through the beads to find the letters in his/her name.

If the child needs extra help, write the child's name on the ornament with a sharpie or fun glitter marker first so the the child knows what letters to collect.

Fill the ornament with some fake snow and the beads that spell out the child's name.  

For extra fun, find some little trinkets to add into the snowy ornament bulb, too.

Put the ornament bulb cap back on and give it a little shake to mix up the ornaments in the snow.
