These Shape Ornaments were so simple to make and would be a great craft for toddlers and preschoolers learning to recognize shapes! Little Brother enjoyed getting to decorate some ornaments for our tree while I was happy to sneak in a little learning. :)
Here’s what you’ll need: craft sticks, Elmer’s glue, paint, a paintbrush, ribbon, decorations, and a hot glue gun (or tacky glue).
1. Glue your craft sticks in the shape you wish to make. We made a triangle for a tree and a square for a present.
3. We let the first coat dry and then painted a second coat. Let dry completely.
4. Start adding your embellishments. We used leftover pom-poms from our pom-pom sorting activity.
5. Use your hot glue gun to add the ribbon to the back (and we added a bow on the front of our square “present”).
They look so cute on our Christmas tree!
