Snowball fights are inevitable with kids, right?
It’s one of the best parts of childhood!
Why not wrap those warm and fuzzy (or rather freezing cold and slushy) memories into an easy, DIY snowball fight Christmas ornament that even the kids can make — with adult supervision, of course!
Busy moms can even find a few minutes to create these cute ornaments!
Our first Christmas tree as a family was decorated with homemade, salt dough ornaments.
The Christmas tree wasn’t fancy, but it was special to us because we had made every single ornament.
Last year we hung store-bought ornaments and homemade ornaments. It was a pretty blend of fancy and homemade with love.
And guess what? The homemade ornaments tend to last the longest!
When we hang them we’re always like, “Careful with that one! Abby made that a few years ago with Grandma!”
They’re just more sentimental. And we learned we can even make Christmas ornaments as gifts! here’s some other Christmas homemade gifts you can make too — because homemade gifts are a powerful love language! <3
Even years later our kids still remember every Christmas tree ornament we’ve ever made.
They remember who made it with them and how much fun we all had creating something cute for the tree — our Christmas tree.
And we love unique Christmas ornaments.
Some DIY Christmas tree ornaments are a dime a dozen.
They’re totally different than our salt dough ornaments several years ago.
And each person can write their own snowball message on each ornament!
Here’s some additional snowball phrases you and your kids can use:
