Many of the traditional holiday DIY decorations are not exactly built with kids in mind. Sure, delicate glass ornaments, light-draped trees, and elaborate wreathes make gorgeous Christmas decor, but most of those require serious adult supervision. Fortunately, these kid-friendly DIY Christmas decorations let your little ones get in on the holiday fun, too. Playing around with glitter and paint can also help your kiddo pass the time while waiting for the big day to arrive.
