5 Quick & Easy Kid-Friendly Christmas Ornaments

Since Christmas is about a week and a half away, and you’re probably getting close to the last day of school, I’m sure you’ve already got parent gifts handled, right? No? Never fear! Here are 5 quick, easy, and cheap kid-friendly ornament crafts that are sure to bring a smile to parents faces!

Slide1

All of these crafts use supplies you most likely already have on hand, with 1 or 2 exceptions.

Christmas Tree Ornament

You’ll need:

Slide2

Slide3

Make a triangle with the popsicle sticks by gluing each corner.

Slide4

Use some glitter glue (or glitter & glue if you’re feeling daring) to decorate!

Slide5

Tie a ribbon on the top, and boom! Done and done! Have students right their name & date on the back.

Snowflake Ornament

You will need:

Slide6

Slide7

Make 2 narrow X’s with your popsicle sticks, and glue in place.

Slide8

Place one X on top of the other to create a snowflake shape.

Slide9

Add a ribbon to hang.

Slide10

Decorate with glitter glue and you’re done! Check out when I made these with my first graders last year here.

Star Ornament

You will need:

Slide11

Slide12

Create 2 triangles by gluing corners.

Slide13

Place glue on one triangle approximately where the triangles will line up. (You can easily wipe off any excess.) Then, add a ribbon to the top.

Slide14

Place the triangle on top, and press down.

Slide15

Decorate with glitter glue and allow to dry!

Reindeer Ornament

You will need:

Slide21

Slide22

Paint your popsicle sticks brown, or just start with brown popsicle sticks.

Slide23

Make a triangle with the popsicle sticks, but slide the stop stick down a bit for antlers.

Slide24

Glue on googly eyes & a pom pom for the nose. (Red for Rudolph, black for regular)

Slide25

Add a ribbon so it can hang. Again, you can add name and date on the back.

Thumbprint Snowman Ornament

You will need:

Slide16

Slide17

Stuff the shredded paper into the ornament. (I got a back of 12 ornaments at Target for about 8 bucks).

Slide18

I recommend doing the rest of the steps one-on-one for younger kids. Have students use their thumbs in black paint to make eyes for the snowman.

Slide19

Use an orange sharpie to draw on a carrot nose and a black sharpie to draw on a mouth.

Slide20

Add a ribbon to the top to hang. You can write the date on the bottom and the students name on the back.

I hope those were helpful! For another bonus ornament that takes a little more time/effort, check out how to make this cute snowman hanging ornament by clicking the picture below!
