This Christmas ornament craft couldn’t be any easier! This one was made by one of my little ones in his first year at school.

You could use our printable bauble colouring pages as templates for this craft, or just draw your own Christmas ornament or bauble shape freehand.


You will need:

  • Coloured card
  • Scissors
  • Colouring pens or crayons
  • Glue
  • Photo of your child
  • Sequins or glitter
  • Hole punch
  • Wool or string to thread through and hang up


Let your little ones cut, stick and colour their decoration however they like, adding a picture of themselves in the middle so that you can tell which ornament belongs to which child, and easily see what age they were when they made it. They could make one each year, and see the progression as time goes on.
