Easy Ornament Crafts for Kids

Craft Foam Ornaments

When you send a handmade ornament to someone special, it says, "I'm thinking of you."

What You'll Need:

  • Assorted colors of craft foam sheets
  • Ballpoint pen
  • Blunt scissors
  • Needle
  • Poster paints
  • Paper towels
  • Thread

Draw a Christmas tree shape on a sheet of green craft foam, draw a Santa Claus shape on red craft foam, and draw a candle and candleholder on yellow craft foam. Cut out all the shapes.

Use a needle to scratch in the detail on both sides of each foam shape. Rub poster paint in the scratched areas. Wipe off any excess paint with a damp paper towel.

Carefully poke a small hole in the top of each foam shape. String a piece of thread through each hole and knot the ends to make the hanger loop.
