Decorating the Christmas tree can be a fun annual event for families to do together, and one way to make it even more fun is to create the ornaments you place on the tree. Many craft stores and superstores offer unfinished wooden ornaments that have already been precut – all you need to do is paint and decorate this. Kids love doing this!
If you go to your local crafts store, you’ll likely to find a variety of unfinished wooden ornaments that have already been cut in the shape of trees, stars, bells, etc. They are often sold individually and without any patterns or paints to accompany them. That means you’re free to buy as few or as many as you like and let your imagination run wild!
You can also find kits that include one or more wooden ornaments and the paint to decorate them. These usually come with suggestions on how to paint the wood pieces, or at least color images on the box that will give you suggestions.
Which one you choose depends on your own preference. Younger kids may have an easier time painting a solid tree or star, while older kids may enjoy the challenge of trying to paint their ornaments to look like the pictures on the box.
Either way, you’ll be creating keepsakes that you’ll enjoy for years to come. You might even want to make it a family tradition to buy new wooden Christmas ornaments to paint each year, so you can make it part of the annual tree decorating process.[ReviewAZON asin=”B001GO02J8″ display=”fullpost”]
