Make This Kid Ornament Craft for Christmas

Kid Ornament Craft

An easy kid ornament craft gets kids involved in holiday decorating. This Christmas tree ornament mobile goes beyond traditional ideas. Whip up our Salt Dough Recipe and get out your tree cookie cutter. This easy child craft will keep the kids busy for up to an hour!

This craft is designed for kids ages 3+ and involves rolling dough, making cookie cutter shapes and them painting them. Younger kids will need help with the final stage of stringing their mobile parts together. When you're finished, all you have to do is pick a place to hang your festive Christmas tree mobile!


  • Salt Dough Recipe

  • Cookie cutter in the shape of a Christmas tree

  • Tempra or acrylic paints

  • Fishing line


  • Prepare the salt dough recipe

  • Roll out with a rolling pin and use the cookie cutter to make 3-5 trees per mobile

  • Use toothpicks to make holes at the top of the trees

  • Prepare a dough "ring" for hanging the trees (see picture). With a toothpick, prick holes around the ring.

  • Let dry

  • Paint the trees (your imagination will guide you)

  • Tie the fishing line to each tree (lace through the hole and knot)

  • Attach the trees to the "ring" by lacing the fishing line through the hole and knotting

  • You're ready to hang your mobile!
