This is a close to no prep activity too, so it’s perfect as a Christmas craft for kindergarten. Give the kids a variety of filling materials to choose from and plastic baubles and have them create their own unique ornaments. 

Combine this ornament with one of the DIY Christmas cards and you have a wonderful little kid made Christmas gift.

What you need:

  • fillable plastic ornament

Step by Step Instructions

We’ve made our bauble by using “glitter” pom poms in green and red color, a classic Christmas color combination.

Open ornament the plastic bauble. If working in a classroom, give the kids the baubles only, keep the top part.

Have the kids fill their ornament with pompoms or other material. Buttons, scrap ribbon, tissue paper are all good options.

Step 2

When they are done, have them bring your the ornament so you can put the cap on.

Step 3

Tie ribbon to the top and the ornament is ready for hanging.
