Christmas Toddler Craft

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
  1. Supervise your toddler while they paint all over the ornament.
  2. 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!

    a great, simple idea. Thanks. I have a few grandkids that would enjoy this and the older ones with more skill could be more creative

      Yes, it doesn’t have to be just for toddlers!

    How cute! And a way for those ornaments to still match your color scheme 😉
