DIY Wood Plaque Ornaments20 Days of Kid-Made OrnamentsIn our home, we have been trying to focus on the meaning behind the season. In my efforts to stick with that theme, we created some ornaments that had reflected the gift of that first Christmas. Our kids had a lot of fun with this craft. It is definitely for an older child though as my youngest is 6 and oldest 12. This post will be added to a series from 50 bloggers called 20 Days of Kid-Made Ornaments. You can also check our the other adorable ideas from these other bloggers on the group Pinterest board.
