I have a simple craft to share that takes less than 5 minutes to put together. Your Kids will love this Easy Christmas Ornament Craft!
One of my favorite Christmas traditions in our home is our Advent Book Countdown. I have lots of Favorite Christmas books for children, last year it was Mortimer’s Christmas Manger and I shared a printable and craft with it. Two years ago, it was Santa’s Favorite Story and we made the cutest Christmas ornament with the kids .
This year it’s “A Wish to Be a Christmas Tree” by Colleen Monroe. It’s about a tree that wishes it’s seen for what it really is–a Christmas tree. Every year it gets picked over and it begins to cry. So all of his woodland friends get together to help the tree see that it’s so much more than a Christmas tree and how much they appreciate him.
It’s a beautiful story for the whole family. We’ve been reading the book Wonder by J Palacio as a family, so this Christmas book touches on some similar themes but in a more light hearted way.
Christmas Tree Ornament Craft for Kids
- ribbon or washi tape
- popsicle stick or twig
Take your popsicle stick and cut pieces of washi tape all in different sizes. With the top one being the smallest and the last one being the largest.
You can use silver or gold washi tape to make the star or ribbon.
Tada! You’re done!
It’s a special book about a tree that wishes others will see it for more than what they see.
Today’s post is part of the 10 Days of Kid Made Ornaments Challenge. Be sure to head over to check out all of the other ornaments inspired by children’s books, including these fun ones:
