Are you looking for easy DIY ornaments that kids can make? Look no further. No baking, mixing, or glueing when you make this ornament. It’s the easiest ever Christmas ornament that your kids will have fun making!
I have to admit, I feel pretty overwhelmed during that holidays because I can’t keep up with all the fun things to do/ make/ eat/ drink. It sometimes becomes too much. That’s why over the last couple of years, I’ve paired back on what we do over the holidays. I refuse to bake every cookie, do every craft, and partake in every holiday activity.

This DIY Christmas ornament activity has stood the test of time
We do this every year, and I look forward to many more years.
Our DIY ornament tradition is fairly simply. Each year I buy clear plastic ornament from The Dollar Tree or Michaels, whichever one is cheaper. Then we fill them up with “mush balls” or other tiny decorations.
How to Make Pom Pom Christmas Ornaments With Your Kids (Even Babies Can Make These!)
- Buy clear plastic ornaments and pom poms
- Take the top off the ornaments
- Put a bunch of pom poms on the floor with the ornament and model how to fill the ornament with pom poms
- Let your kids go to town!
- Have them make multiple ornaments as Christmas gifts for grandparents
- Use a Sharpie or paint pen to write the name and year on each ornament
One year (the year Robert was obsessed with Frozen) we filled them with blue “mush balls”.
This year, and also in 2014, we went with classic red, green, and white. The sales at the craft stores dictated my color selection this year.
Another reason I love this craft is because it’s so versatile. You can fill them up with all kinds of memories, including vacation moments ornaments.
There are so many fun ornaments you can make with clear ornaments, and it’s a great way to save money while making memories.
