Toddler Christmas Ornament

I was inspired by this Paper Plate Christmas Wreath from a little delightful to get my stuff together and start doing some Christmas crafts with my daughter. I invited a couple of her friends over and we had a crafts play date, it was awesome. We made foam pasta ornaments for our tree and a handprint wreath to hang on my wall, and cherish FOREVER! All the kids had a wonderful time and it was something they could all easily do.

The first thing I did was color some pasta,  tutorial here, which was super easy to do. I then took a plate from my cupboard and cut out a bunch of circles from a foam sheets pack that I got at the dollar store, best dollar I have ever spent.

I separated all of the colors into plastic bowls and placed them in the center of the table for easy access. I took some Elmer's glue and placed dots all over the circle. My daughter got busy sticking pasta everywhere.

After my daughter was done I applied another layer of glue on top, thanks Tricia for the tip, to keep the pasta from falling off. Once everything had dried I used my hole puncher to make a hole at the top and then I tied some ribbon around it to hang it on the tree.

Beautiful, isn't it! I added her name and the year on the bottom of each ornament using a pen so I could remember the year and child who made it, in case we have more kids some day.
