Nothing says Christmas like homemade ornaments on the tree. Even though my daughters are only 5 & 3, we've already got quite a collection of ornaments that they've made in years past. It is so much fun to pull them out of the boxes when we decorate the tree and reminisce about when or where we made their special ornaments. We love thinking about how much they've grown and changed over the years. We even have quite a few ornaments that I made when I was a little girl that we put on our tree! My girls LOVE seeing and hearing about them.
Why not make a whole alphabet of ornaments with your children this year? I've found great projects-- one for every letter of the alphabet, from A to Z. You'll find plenty of inspiration for making Christmas keepsakes that your family will cherish for years to come.
