How is it 2 weeks until Christmas already?
How has it been 2 months since I last posted something? More on that another day…
If you’ve seen some of my other toddler crafts, you know that I am a huge fan of minimal parental involvement in said projects. This craft is no different. It’s a very simple painted wooden ornament. It almost sounds too simple to write about, but I haven’t seen this activity posted on any of the homemade gift or toddler Christmas craft posts I’ve come across on Pinterest.
Who wouldn’t want to receive a hand painted ornament, especially when the artist is this cute?
This one is all for Mami!
This craft is very low prep & has minimal supplies. I purchased a blank wooden ornament from Target for $1. There are LOTS of stores that would have something like this currently – all the craft stores, Wal Mart, etc. I chose 3 “wintery” acrylic paint colors for Cupcake to use. Choose your favorite color scheme! Just keep in mind that toddlers like to go over the same spot again & again, so the colors can get muddled. Our icy blue, silver, & gold help up decently to this – though the blue is a little lost!
You could use another medium for this craft – markers or glitter glue sound like fun, too!
Christmas Toddler Craft
- blank wooden ornament
- paint in 2-3 colors, or another medium such as markers or glitter glue!
- adorable toddler
- Supervise your toddler while they paint all over the ornament.
- When they’re done, allow the ornament to dry. You can add their name, your family name, or a fun Christmas saying to the ornament. I’m turning this into our family ornament for 2018 by using my Cricut & some vinyl – you could do something similar with a marker or a stencil & paint!
