Paper Maniac Kid Crafts

Happy Wednesday to you!

Hope your day is going well! I'm off early today to take my daughter to ballet class and then we'll hit the grocery store on the way home. I hope to have some crafting time later too, but we'll see about that!

Today I have a special project to share. This is one my daughter Emma and I created together for my DT work with Paper Maniac. Our assignment this week was to create a project with our kids. So, while my son was at school the other day, Emma and I made this ornament!

Sorry about the glare, no matter what I did, I couldn't avoid it! These fun plastic ornaments are available at Paper Maniac and they make for a perfect keepsake. Emma chose the image and then colored it all by herself. I'm proud to say that an "almost" 4 year old did this! She is a budding crafter, can you tell she watches mom!

After she finished coloring her image we cut it out with circle Nesties to fit the ornament. Then we filled half of the ornament with glitter and beads. Next we fit the image piece into the ornament as far as it would go and taped it down. Lastly, we added satin ribbon for a hanger.

I love that I only had to use one half of the ornament, now I can get my son to make one too. Then our Christmas tree will have two new ornaments this year! This was a fun and easy project to do with Emma and it took very little time. I know we are all very busy these days, but if you have a half hour, these Kid Craft projects are lots of fun! You can see all the different crafts for kids at Paper Maniac, HERE!

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back this afternoon with the winner of the Whimsy Blog Stroll! If you haven't had a chance to stroll through our change of season blog hop, you have until noon EST today! Have fun and happy stamping! :)
