Kid Craft: Ornament Decorating

One of the kid Christmas activities we did this month was decorating ornaments to go on our blue and silver “Frozen” themed tree upstairs.

Here’s how we did it (in pictures):

Yes, the stars turned out perfect. We even added some glitter glue a few days later to make them really sparkly like the rest of our tree!  The boys loved this activity and I had to get over some of my mom OCD-ness and just let them go for it.  Paint all over the place and all!  Don’t you just love their “mom’s old paint shirt turned smock”? If you do this, I recommend keeping with one color palette so that it doesn’t look like brown mud in the end. With a  bunch of blues, white and gray in there, no matter how they mixed, I knew it would generally end up a white-ish blue, which would look great on our upstairs boys tree!

Hope your Christmas crafting has been as fun and messy as ours!
