I think ornaments can be a fun gift to give someone before Christmas (for the host of a holiday party, family friends, a teacher, etc.). They are just a little something thoughtful that can be enjoyed before the holiday gets here. Last year, my daughter and I made these for a few friends that we saw throughout December. Plus you can always make an extra to add to your tree!

My 2 year old helped somewhat, but mostly gave me instructions about how she thought it should be done, and insisted that we painted a few red. Here’s what we came up with.
