My kids loved going to this Crafty Kids Christmas Camp to make ornaments, Christmas cookies, and homemade gifts to give to others. It’s a great activity for those in-between school weeks.
This is a super fun activity to do because there are so many different options for what your Scrabble Tile Christmas Tree Ornament can say! Be creative with names, events, awards earned during the year, etc.
I love this fun Decoupage Photo Christmas Ornament idea because it’s so fun to look at the photos each year as we decorate the Christmas tree.
We made this at our homeschool co-op last year, and it was a hit with the kids!
