Pop on some Christmas tunes, lay out the mince pies and sit down together to create some memories that will last a lifetime. I bet my mum still has a few of my old DIY Christmas Ornaments from when I was a kid! I love looking back at the decorations my eldest son made in nursery a few years ago now, I can’t imagine ever getting tired of hanging them on our Christmas tree. With 3 kids though we might need to invest in another tree if we are to find a place for them all.

 Here are 18 fantastic ideas for homemade Christmas tree ornaments kids will love to make:

Add a quirky twist to traditional Salt Dough Ornaments when you add in some Bubble Wrap. And then use some more to make a Bubble Wrap Snowman Snow Globe Ornament.
