Painted Twig Icicle Christmas Ornaments for Kids

|
We teamed up with our Creative Preschool friends to share some fun nature inspired ornaments you can make with your preschooler.  There isn't much outside right now except for a backyard full of bare branches, so we were inspired to decorate some twigs for our nature inspired ornament craft.

I cut several small twigs from a tree outside and my kiddos had a great time painting Twigcicles.

 What you need:



To begin, set out a little twigcicle creation station with paint and various craft materials readily available.  Along with our paint, I had tissue paper, gems, glitter, sequins, and washi tape.  I also had our hot glue gun fired up just in case someone wanted to add sequins to their twigcicle!

 The kiddos came to the table {my 8, 4, and 2 year old} and each one had fun unleashing their creativity with this twigcicle craft.  There was no method to their madness, but pure delight as they created!


Once they dried, I cut several pieces of green wire and wrapped one tightly around one end of each twigcicle and bent the free end of the wire into a hook-like shape to be hung on the tree.


Now we have some new ornaments for the tree, inspired by nature and made by my precious kids!  I just love our twigcicles!
