Looking for easy Christmas ornament crafts for kids? Try making some glue and salt ornaments with this simple tutorial.

One Christmas, I stocked up on clear plastic ornaments when they were half price. I wasn't sure what to do with them at the time, but I figured that I would eventually come up with some kind of Christmas ornament craft for kids.

Well, I finally did and the results are beautiful.

See the thing is we have never tried the whole glue, salt, and watercolor art process before.

Shocking, I know.

So my youngest son (who was four years old at the time) and I had fun experimenting with this method to make some pretty glue and salt ornaments for the Christmas tree. It was a lot of fun and they turned out great!

Some of the ornaments were painted, but most were left plain white, like below.

The process is fun, but a wee bit messy. The bonus is you end up with a Christmas ornament keepsake that you can keep for years.

You can get the full tutorial for this Christmas ornament craft over on CBC Parents.
