Hands up who loves making their own Christmas ornaments? Most little kids do enjoy this! 

Previously I have made lots of different Christmas tree decorations such as my Ballerina ornament and my pipe cleaner Christmas ornaments. The Ballerina is suitable for older kids while the pipe cleaner decorations can be made by younger children. 

My latest creation is a Reindeer Christmas tree decoration which is very simple and quick to make. Pre-schoolers can make this with Mum or Dad’s help and older kids will be able to make it by themselves!
