Homemade Christmas decorations are special in so many ways.

  • It's fun engaging everyone in the creative process.
  • You get to add your personal touch to the finished product.
  • Kids exercise early learning skills, like fine motor, creative, and language, 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, or purchased at a dollar store. 

Rummage together through materials you have on hand, choosing ones that are easy for kids to handle. (We salvaged some greenery from a small artificial tree).
