Elmo Ornament Kids Craft
My husband took down the Christmas boxes from our attic this week. I know, crazy. I turn around and POOF the holidays are here. Even more than that, my toddler has already started singing the songs. You know….the ones that are stuck in your head but you’re only a toddler so you just sing the one line that you know over and Over and OVER.
It’s a good thing that I adore my little one’s off-key singing voice.
But not to diminish her excitement for the season (I mean it’s probably the first Christmas she will actually remember this year!), we have started the Christmas crafting. And when you combine one of my child’s favorite characters and Christmas….you get holiday toddler bliss. This easy Elmo Ornament Kids Craft combines a fun activity and a frugal ornament craft (under a dollar, yo!) in one afternoon of holiday excitement. So grab your jingle bells and your favorite Elmo toy for an afternoon of kid friendly ornament crafting!
What You Will Need:
- Plastic fillable ornament
- Red filler craft items: What a great time to learn more about the color red with your child! Ribbon, pom-poms, tissue paper, fabric, etc. all make great stuffers for your ornament and your little one will love being the one to stuff it!
- 1 large orange pom-pom
- 2 large googly eyes
- Help your child fill the ornament with assorted red treasures from around the home. Let your child take the lead as you scavenger hunt for the items! We found stickers a fabric and tissue paper and even brother’s blocks…. 🙂
- Replace the lid to the ornament. Glue on the orange pom-pom nose and 2 large googly eyes. Allow to dry
- When dry, let your child hang their ornament for the world to see!
No holiday season is complete without your favorite Elmo friend to go with your new ornament! That’s why we love squeezing our Playskool Sesame Street Play All Day Elmo while we decorate our festive home.
