One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is all the fun crafts that I get to do with my kids.  Whether to use for decorations or save for gifts, it’s such a great way to be festive and make the most of the season.  Which is what makes these DIY Christmas ornament kits for kids so awesome.

They come with all the supplies your child will need to complete a Christmas ornament and then you can save it to use as a gift, or decorate your own tree with them!

But more importantly, this is such a fun way to spend a holiday afternoon with the kids…and you don’t need to pull out all of your own supplies.  These will come with everything.

And if you use an Advent calendar like we do, these are PERFECT fillers that go beyond just candy or trinkets. 

I hope you get a chance to try one of these craft kits!  Have a fun and happy holiday season!
