What do you put in a clear Christmas ornament?

As I stated, I have quite a few Christmas ornament crafts featured on my site. Each of these clear Christmas ornament crafts feature a different theme, such as candy canes and Christmas lights. While I do have my own list of ideas to make your own Christmas ornaments with your kids if you’re looking for another list of ideas to put in a clear Christmas ornament, here are some ideas:

  • Colorful Glitter
  • Sand Art
  • Candy
  • Bouncy Balls
  • Miniature Figurine

You can easily switch out some of my Christmas ornament crafts to make other art projects with your kids.

I can see using your kid favorite miniature figurine to place inside the clear Christmas ornament with sand art around them to keep them in place all the while making it look like the miniature figurine is standing on a dirt mound.

You can also use candy to fill clear Christmas ornaments for stocking stuffers or a surprise gift on your family tree. The list really could get quite extensive and I bet if you ask your kids what else they think they could make out of these clear Christmas ornaments, they’ll be happy to brainstorm some ideas.

Making crafts with kids is an excellent way to strengthen the bond of friendship amongst your preschoolers, and help your kids establish a solid sense of self-confidence.

Arts and crafts are one thing where you really can’t go wrong. Since arts and crafts are something where beauty is in the eye of the beholder, everyone can be a skilled artist.

Teach Color Patterns

Have your kids alternative red and green pom poms as they work to develop the concept of color patterns. Perhaps you can have your kids place the red and green pom poms on their table into a specific color pattern before they put them inside the clear Christmas ornament. This will help provide a little education for your kids as they enjoy craft time with their friends or siblings.

Count the Pom Poms

Another fun idea to incorporate learning into this easy, but engaging Christmas craft is to have the kids count the pom poms as they push them into the ornament.

Or separate the red and green pom poms before placing them in the Christmas ornament, count each set and then add them together to see how many pom poms there are altogether.

Fine Motor Challenge

To add an additional fine motor challenge to the pom pom Christmas ornament activity, you can use tweezers to pick up the pom poms and put them into the ornament.

These Learning Resources tweezers are our absolute favorite and we use them all.the.time.
