Homemade Christmas decorations are special in so many ways:

  • It's fun engaging in the creative process.
  • You get to add your personal touch to the finished product.
  • Kids exercise fine motor and creative play as the family works together.

You can easily create this simple Christmas centerpiece with the kids. The materials can be found in your craft box or decorations bin, and they are easy for kids to handle.

Rummage together through materials you have on hand, especially decorations you no longer use. (We salvaged some greenery from a small artificial tree).

Pine cones and other materials are available online and in craft or dollar stores. 

  • We are fortunate to have a pine tree in our yard that provides us with pine cones so we've used them in several crafts and activities.
