A DIY Christmas Craft for Kids

Adults always have different reasons why they would like kids to become involved in different projects. There are instances when crafts and DIY projects are approved and recommended so that adults can also bond with their kids. It is important though that in choosing a DIY project, you will choose something that a child will appreciate and enjoy.

DIY Christmas Ball

A Christmas ball is something that a lot of kids enjoy doing frankly because of the different designs that they can put on it. While a lot of kids enjoy playing with glitters, there are also some who would rather stick their own drawings on their very own Christmas ball that can be put on the tree. Here are the items that you will need:

  • Styrofoam Balls
  • Glue
  • Bowl with water
  • Glitters
  • Scissors
  • Other decorative materials
  • String

The first thing that you have to do is to mix the glue with water. This will make it easy for kids to use the paintbrush to layer their Styrofoam balls with glue before they place their designs. If you are going to use glitters to decorate, rub the Styrofoam ball with glue on the glitters. This will make the glitters stick to the Styrofoam ball easily. Wait for the Styrofoam ball to dry. Once it has dried up, you can then pierce through the top of the ball and insert the string to create a loophole. Once done, kids will love the Styrofoam balls that they have made to put on the Christmas tree.
