- Identifying shapes, colors, and sizes.
Why Is It Important For Kids To Make Crafts ?
Besides the fact that kids love arts and crafts projects, there are so many other reasons you should do art and craft activities with your child.
That’s it! All you need is two simple supplies! And when you purchase them in bulk or at the dollar store, you can not only create an easy Christmas ornament for kids, but also a cheap Christmas ornament that still looks beautiful.
Because as much as I love crafting with the kids during Christmas, Christmas can easily turn into a very expensive season with all of the activities and crafts smashed together into such a short period of time.
How To Use This Light Bulb Christmas Ornament
how to fill plastic christmas ornaments
Provide each child with their own clear Christmas ornament. I like to provide a lot of filler options at once, so that kids can create their own unique ornament and I’ve provided lots of filler ideas on the site (simply search: Christmas ornament).
For this ornament you just need the clear Christmas ornament and the mini Christmas lights.
Open the top of the ornament and have the kids use their developing fine motor skills to place the individual lights into the bulb.
Take the fine motor challenge up a notch by using our favorite kids’ tweezers to pick up the Christmas lights and drop them into the Christmas ornament.
