We just put up our tree and the kids were excited to decorate it with some ornaments that they made. I was thrilled with how they came out and how easy they were to make. With a few simple supplies that you probably already own, you can make some fun and whimsical Christmas ornaments with your little ones.

Supplies you will need:

- Glue and brush
- Pom poms
The kids "painted" their snowflakes with glue...
When the snowflakes were dry, I glued some ribbon to the back and then the kids hung them up on the Christmas tree.
The snowflakes turned out so well that I decided to make more ornaments using our cool new supplies. Using my glue gun again, I made some Christmas trees out of green Popsicle sticks. I used four Popsicle sticks to make the tree. For the smaller branches on top I just broke the sticks in half. They had some jagged edges so I just cut them off.
Next, I gave the kids some pom poms and glue so they could decorate their tree with "Christmas balls."
"A" is busy gluing on pom poms. She made sure to cover every surface of the tree!
B left a little space between her pom poms.
Can you tell who made which tree?
