Angel Christmas Ornament * kid-made *

These angel Christmas ornaments are perfect for preschoolers and older kids!

I am excited to share them with you as part of the kid-made Christmas celebration at Mama Miss!  My kids (4 to 10 years old) made them all by themselves and my 2- year old had a great time making one with me!  The best part was that each child took the supplies and personalized each angel themselves!

The supplies are super simple!

You just need pretty artificial flowers (we used gold, silver, and white flowers from Walmart), peg clothespins, paint (we used white and gold), glitter, fuzzy sticks (gold and/or silver), and a hot glue gun!

My kids love using hot glue guns! We usually use the "cold temperature" ones, but they're very careful with them both. Make sure your kids have enough supervision to be safe while they work! 

We read Jesus' Christmas Party to go with our angel Christmas ornaments. The book is adorable and hilarious!  It introduces the nativity story from the inn-keepers' perspective... can you imagine what he thought of a choir of angels?!

To get your kids started making their angels, simply set out the supplies and let your kids design their own angels!

I like to give as few directions as necessary, so that the kids get to work through the design and engineering process as they create. This actually includes elements of science, technology, engineering, and art! If you found a way to include math you would have all the elements of a STEM or STEAM project! 

They each came out a little different and absolutely stunning! And, of course, finding them in the tree all season is one of the best parts!
