Oh how we love this time of year! Christmas is one of my very favourite craft seasons ever.. mmmh I think I may say that about almost every season. But joking aside, I really do love Christmas crafting. I have many happy memories of myself crafting at a young age. The days are short and dark. You spend time in the cozy indoors and you start getting ready and festive for Christmas. Christmas is also a great time to make gifts for friends and family. Nothing quite says is as homemade. Christmas Decorations are a great little craft that make great gifts as well as keepsakes! So sweet. So I thought it would be good to share our Christmas Ornaments for Preschool! This is part of our overall Christmas Ornament round up, but I wanted to pull out these special crafts just for preschoolers for extra easy browsing!
Christmas Ornaments for Preschoolers
Needless to say, tehse are also suitable for older kids working independently, but they are a great set of crafts to do with toddlers and preschool.
Top tip – add your metal wire hanger FIRST to allow for easy holding whilst painting or decorating

Crafting with Nature – Nature Ornaments for Preschool

Fun with Salt Dough

- Similarly, adding a button, makes them extra cute: Button Saltdough Hearts
- I LOVE this variation on salt dough.. and adding sea glass or lots of buttons to make Christmas Trees!
- Or make them any shape – like these Salt Dough Golden Stars (Garland)
Ornaments that are great for fine motor skills
- Button Snowflakes (who can resist a button)
- Hama Bead Stars – we love Hama Beads – a great way to get that fine motor skill practice in, whilst making cute decorations. These would also look lovely as part of gift wrap or a Christmas Card!
