I am so so so so ever pleased to be participating in this wonderful holiday tradition again with a group of my favorite kid bloggers!
Alissa of Creative With Kids has pulled together a group of fab blogs, bloggers, and creative ideas, along with her co-host, the sweet (and crafty!) Maggy from Red Ted Art, and I can tell you that family-oriented, fun for the holidays ideas abound! Last year, we contributed a DIY Family Memory Game to the Countdown.
For Day 17 of the Creative Christmas Countdown this year, we made Mini Bauble Ornament Wreaths.
This activity is super simple so that even your toddler can join in on making your house merry for the holidays. (Keep in mind that this is not just a Christmas activity, but you can do the same thing in colors for any holiday or event, like Valentine’s day, Easter, or Halloween).
Along with creative festive decorations, your little one will also be developing fine motor skills, learning colors and patterns, and learning about tradition.
- 24-36 small round ornaments (We bought ours at Target from the $1 bins).
- Flower wire or pipe cleaners
- Ribbon (optional)
Tie together the wire ends to form your wreath.

Happy Holidays to you and your family!
