6 Homemade Ornaments to Make With Your Kids

My kids loving putting up the tree for the holiday season. We usually wait until Dec 1.  But this year, they were so excited that we put it up early, on the long weekend after Remembrance Day. And we had so much fun! The best part is going through and looking at all the ornaments and hanging them up. Most of ours are homemade ornaments, either at home or at school. And they have a lot of great memories attached to them.

It has become a tradition for us to make one new ornament each year for the tree. We usually do a little search on Pinterest and we found so many great ones that we thought we’d share our favourites with you.
