There is no reason for them to be stuck in front of a television set or playing video games on Christmas Day. Take some time to make homemade ornaments for them this season. They are sure to appreciate the effort you put into their gifts and will enjoy looking at the decorations for a change. With the price of gas this Christmas season, why not consider making some ornaments for the boys and girls in your life?
Create A Special Disney Wreath
If your child loves the winter wonderland scene painted by Walt Disney for their favorite Disney movie, why not create a special Disney wreath for their door? A Disney Christmas wreath can be as elaborate or as simple as your child wants it to be. A basic star chair wreath can easily be made using a cardboard cutter, spray paint, and a little creativity. You can cut shapes from yellow construction paper and poke holes in it with pins. Use white craft tape to hold the shape to the wreath handle.
If your child is crafty enough, they might even want to make a small number of their own DIY Christmas crafts. For example, if they love to draw or paint, they can make their very own star barrettes for their door ornaments. If they are more crafty, they might want to try making their very own snowman or Santa Clause or reindeer or even a pair of bunny ears!
