Toddler DIY – Kid Friendly Christmas Crafts

Welcome to the holidays, time for Kid Friendly Christmas Crafts. Only this year, I have a toddler trying to help.

Kid Friendly Christmas Crafts

I went searching for kid friendly Christmas crafts and this is what I found. 

I found the cutest ornament on Pinterest, so I figured I would give it a shot. 

While I am putting the final result on my tree, this is totally a Pinterest fail. 

LOL It happens.

When you want your kids fully involved just relax and let the mess happen.


Salt Dough Santa Hand Print Ornaments:

1/2 cup salt

1/2 cup flour

1/4 water (give or take)



knead until dough forms


Make impression and cut out hand shape with a knife leaving a border. Poke a hole in the top for hanging.





Bake at 200F for 3 hours.


 Paint, seal and ready to hang

Then we did something fun and messy.  I let him decorate some pine cones from the yard.  He had fun with this.

We rolled the pine cones in white paint to look like snow and I let him decorate them with glitter glue pen.
