I bought these transparent ornaments last year, when I was heavily pregnant and looking for calm activities to do with my toddler. Of course, in the end, we didn’t decorate them at all. I think I overestimated my at the time two year old daughter. And my at the time energy level ( pretty low). So this year, I decided it’s time to paint them!
But, again, in the end we didn’t paint them. We did something better :). We added gold glitter ! And after my daughters suggestion, I decided to offer them as gifts, so I also painted the names of our family members on them, to make them personalized 🙂
All you need is:
Pour as much glitter as you wish inside the transparent ornament, and personalize it with a hand written name ! And if you’d make it with a three year old like I did, you will have glitter everywhere for a week, including your car. But it’s totally worth it ! 😉
And here is another Christmas ornament that we did, and this one we managed to make last year :). It’s an air dry clay, that’s super easy to prepare, and once dried really really white. We used cookie cutters, and we had so much fun! It’s really a toddler friendly craft, that you could try this year :). And if you click here you’ll find out how to make them :).
And as you can see, this year my simple & rustic Christmas tree is rather small, but it’s because I needed to put it out of my crawling babies way 🙂 but I still love it, especially because of our hand made ornaments that I did together with Lili :).
