Have Yourself a Salt Dough Christmas

This year we are making special keepsake ornaments for the grandparents. My kids are at that age where they are still small, but in one more year they will be practically grown children. They still have that sweet baby-like look to them, and their hands are still so small and beg to be held. I want to remember all of that. So this year we will make some special salt dough Christmas ornaments that will keep their little hands small and baby-like forever.

The fun thing about salt dough is that you can make practically anything with it. Your ornaments do not need to be plain, ordinary, or even the same shape or theme. There is a world of possibilities even when you are using a handprint or footprint as your shape.

Christmas Ornaments: Build Your Own!

Do your boys love legos? If so come really close, be very quiet, and don’t let anyone see your computer screen for the next few moments.

If you need some new ideas for gifting fun holiday items this season, look no further. We have found lego Christmas ornaments. Your boys will love building their own Christmas decorations and hanging them from the tree. Chris McVeigh has dozens of fun Christmas ornaments that are going to make your boys gas this year when they open their presents. Each kit comes complete with directions and a kit to hang the ornament from the tree. You can choose from their many different series including Geek, Gingerbread and More, Plate series, and Christmas Trees.

Your boys will love interacting with their new toy/Christmas decoration, and it will be fun for the whole family. The incredibly cool part is once the holidays are over you can disassemble it and pack it away for next year. Unlike most ornaments that need to be protected while packed away this will be perfectly safe. And unlike most gingerbread houses which need to be eaten or thrown away. At the end of the holiday this one can be kept and enjoyed for years to come!
