The Library Adventure uses affiliate links, see our policies for more information.

Today The Library Adventure is taking part in a fun project that a group of over 50 bloggers have put together. It is 20 Days of Kid-Made Ornaments! The other two blogs sharing a kid made ornament today are Something 2 Offer and Learn with Play at Home. Mama Miss is our hostess, be sure to check out the linky of all the kid-made Christmas ornaments linked up at her blog.

Our kid-made ornament is a printable. Your kids can cut the pages out, put the ornament together, and then fill it in. This would make a fun story time or group activity.

Just a note: My kids have not put theirs together, I put this sample together because we have all been sick all week. I’ll update the post when they are well enough to do theirs.

  6. My 13 yr old son is decorating the tree right now, and we pulled this out of the ornament box. I want to thank you for sharing this wonderful ornament! We sat and read all his answers from 2 years ago, talked about which answers are different now and which are the same. I’m going to print this out, again, and have him complete it today. What a treasure to have!
