There’s something magical that happens when you sit down to make crafts with kids. Your kids laugh and talk as they use their fine motor skills to create something beautiful. These glitter snowflake ornaments are a fun craft for kids. You can get ready for the holiday season by gathering the supplies now and then printing the instructions for a new Chrsitmas family tradition together. Craft time is a fun new family tradition to enjoy during the holidays.
My kids are grown, they’re teens and it’s all about the other side of parenthood for me. That’s why I love living through you as I shared crafts for kids that are younger. The younger years fly by faster than you could ever imagine. I highly recommend you pause your busy life to take a second and make these adorable Christmas ornaments with your kids soon.
How do I entertain my child at home?
Let’s face it, young kids have a short attention span. There are many ways you can work to entertain your child at home. While of course, I’m going to tell you that this craft for kids should top your list, here are some other ways you can work to entertain your child at:
- Make an obstacle course.
- Create your own scavenger hunt indoors or outdoors.
- Make a blanket fort.
- Have storytime.
- Build with LEGOS.
- Play with toys.
- Pretend play with pretend kitchen, dolls, or play dress-up.

Glitter Snowflake Ornaments
- 3 Craft sticks (per ornament)
- White paint
- Tacky glue
- White glitter
- 6 inch piece of thin white ribbon
- Paper or mat
Lay your paper or mat down to catch all of your messes. Paint each side of the craft sticks and let dry.
Put some tacky glue in the center of one of the craft sticks. Assemble the snowflake by layering another craft stick on top of that to make a narrow â€œxâ€. Put a dot of glue in the middle of the top craft stick, and situate the third craft stick on top to take the shape of a snowflake.
Put one drop of glue in the center of the top craft stick, and 3 dots of glue each below and above that. Place 3 dots of glue across each of the other craft sticks.
Sprinkle glitter generously on top of the craft sticks that are dotted with glue.
Once glue and glitter is dry, attach the ribbon to the back of the snowflake.
