DIY: Handmade Christmas Ornament for Toddlers

My busy toddlers love making crafts. Handmade crafts and gifts always make the best family presents for the holidays. So when I found this idea online, I just knew we would have to make these ornaments for all of the grandparents this year. I also intend to make one of each for us to keep — we allow the girls to decorate their own tree in their playroom every Christmas. I think these “handmade” ornaments will make a lovely addition each year!

Here’s what you’ll need:

ingredients

  • 4 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of salt
  • a large mixing bowl
  • water to moisten
  • a cookie sheet
  • a little bit of oil for greasing (or nonstick spray)
  • a small rolling pin
  • a drinking straw
  • decorative ribbon
  • paint (optional)

This craft recipe makes enough for approximately four to six ornaments, depending on the size.

Here’s how you make it:

1. Preheat your oven to 170 degrees.

2. In your mixing bowl, gradually mix the flour, salt, and water. Take care to add gradually, because you can always add more water, but you can’t take away. (I added 1/4 cup water at a time.)

mixing

3. Next, lightly grease the cookie sheet with oil (or cooking spray). Then roll out your dough — start by making a ball of dough, place it on the cookie sheet, and roll out (smooth surface) to the desired thickness.

4. Use the straw to make a hole in the dough before allowing your child to make his or her handprint. You may need to coat his or her hand with flour first (or even sprinkle a little flour over the dough itself), it tends to get a little sticky. Keep in mind that your dough has to be thick enough to make the handprint. If it’s too thin, it won’t work.

5. Bake for three to four hours, until dry and hard.

6. Once cool, paint the ornament (if desired), and add the ribbon for hanging.

Aren’t they adorable? These handmade crafts are sure to be a crowd pleaser this Christmas. Happy Christmas crafting!

Being hard on ourselves just means that we are try Being hard on ourselves just means that we are trying to be the best mothers to our children that we can be . . .
And giving ourselves grace means that we recognize that we are only human and that we will make mistakes along the way.
It’s okay to make mistakes as long as we’re trying. And when we make mistakes, recognize them, admit them, ask for forgiveness and keep going. ❤️ Children easily forgive us just like we easily forgive them. It’s because of love. Love is a powerful thing. Now we just need to show ourselves a little more of that love too. 💕

Becoming a #newmom is simultaneously one of the most exciting and nerve-wracking moments in a person’s life. Your baby is finally here, and you get to embark on this amazing new phase of life. 😍 On the flipside, you also suddenly have a new life to take care of –  and one that is 100% dependent on you. Cue the anxiousness! 😳 To make it even more fun, there’s definitely no instruction manual for this new tiny human, but seemingly everyone has an opinion and they are not afraid to give their (well-meaning but usually irritating) advice to new moms. 🙄 What new moms need to hear and what most everyone tells them are, unfortunately, very different things!⁠ So if you’re wondering what you should and shouldn’t say to a new mom, here are a few quick tips.⁠ 👍⁠ {Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading!}⁠

You've just welcomed a new baby into your arms. Co You've just welcomed a new baby into your arms. Congratulations! 🤗🎉 There is so much oxytocin in the room (the "love" hormone) that everyone is on a high! 😍 Your body has accomplished so much up to this point, growing and birthing a baby, and it will continue to do hard work during your recovery post-birth. 💪 But you've done it! And you and your partner rejoice! yayyy!⁠ 🥰

As the days pass after giving birth your exhaustion levels go up. 😴 After delivering a baby, regardless of the method of delivery, and staying up all night (night after night) #sex may be one of the last things on your mind. 🙅‍♀️ Between the physical changes to your body from the delivery, the exhaustion of caring for a newborn, and the emotional changes induced by hormones, there are just a few barriers to #sexafterbaby. If you feel this way, the good news is these feelings are very normal, common, and temporary. But, it is also normal, common, and good to want to have sex with your partner as soon as you can. ❤️ But how long do you need to wait to have sex after having a baby? And why?⁠ 🤔 We have an OBGYN answering these questions and more on baby-chick.com {Click the 🔗 in our bio!}⁠

❤️ How to Parent With Encouragement Instead of ❤️ How to Parent With Encouragement Instead of Criticism ❤️⁠
.⁠
As a both a parent and an educator, my hope is to parent with encouragement instead of criticism. But like any parent, I’m not perfect, and I’ve been on my own journey to learn how to discipline my children without criticizing them when they make a mistake. This topic has been of particular interest to me over the years.⁠
.⁠
A fascinating article published in The Journal of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology found that children who are constantly being criticized develop a habit of avoiding looking at other people’s facial expressions—whether those people are expressing positive or negative feelings. By avoiding looking at other people, children’s ability to receive positive information and make positive social connection with others is undermined. Researchers suggest that this could lead to anxiety and depression in that child.⁠
.⁠
More and more scientific research shows how parenting and education techniques that revolve around encouragement rather than criticism can lead to a healthier self-image and positive behavior in children. With depression, anxiety, and suicide on the rise for youth across our nation, it is more important than ever before for us to lovingly examine the ways we parent and how we talk to our children during these early childhood years. {Continue reading by clicking 🔗 in bio❤️}⁠

🧘‍♀️ 10 Self-Care Necessities for Moms 💅⁠
.⁠
As mothers, we are usually the last ones on our priority list. There is so much to do . . . for the house, for our jobs, for our partners and pets, and especially for our children. It can leave us with little to no time for ourselves. With self-care making a comeback and more people recognizing the importance of "me time" and mental health, people are speaking up and making themselves a priority again. As moms, we need to do the same. Because as they say, it's not us saying "me first" it's us saying "me too." Moms matter! So if you're looking for some items that can help you put yourself back on your to-do list, we're sharing our self-care necessities for moms that we love and recommend. ❤️ {Click 🔗 in bio to check them out!}⁠

😴 Finding Rest During the Newborn Days 😴⁠ 😴 Finding Rest During the Newborn Days 😴⁠
.⁠
Nothing is more amazing than the moment you see your baby’s face for the first time. The joy, excitement and love that overcome you make it feel like you are literally on top of the world! It isn’t until you get home where the doubts, fear and overwhelming feelings begin to kick in. Suddenly, you are responsible for this tiny, helpless being . . . who won't sleep! 😳 You are feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. And you start to wonder how you will ever find rest during these seemingly endless newborn days. 😖⁠
.⁠
Unfortunately, nothing can prepare you for how hard, exhausting, lonely and overwhelming motherhood can be. There are levels of tired no one can accurately describe. The good news is that you are not alone, and the way you're feeling is very normal. And I am here to tell you that you are doing great and that these hard moments won’t last forever.⁠
.⁠
As a mom of three little ones (6 years, 4 years and 2 years) I have experienced first-hand MANY exhausting moments. As a Certified Sleep Consultant, I have worked with hundreds of families who are experiencing exhausting moments themselves. We all go through really hard times on our parenting journey and that is okay. I always tell my fellow moms that it is okay to NOT be okay! One of my favorite quotes is “we are wired to do hard things.” But that doesn't mean you can't get some help and advice along the way. {Click the 🔗 in bio to continue reading how to find rest during the newborn days}⁠

❤️ 5 Things You Should Do Your First Week as a ❤️ 5 Things You Should Do Your First Week as a New Parent ❤️⁠
.⁠
Welcome to #parenthood! After what seems like forever, baby has finally arrived. 😍 This is one of the most exciting, nerve-wracking times a person can have in their life, and it can be very easy to get overwhelmed and lost in the moment. 🙈 But this first week as a new parent can be one of the hardest.⁠
.⁠
I thought reading a few books was all I really needed to prepare me for motherhood, but in the end, it was completely different from anything I ever imagined. The first week, especially, was much more overwhelming than I expected; you’re physically recovering from #childbirth, your hormones running haywire as they start to resettle back to some sort of normal, and you’re getting to know your baby, all while trying to get them to eat, sleep, and stay healthy and strong.⁠
.⁠
Looking back on that time, there are definitely more than a handful of things I wish I could have told my newbie-mom self to do, but here are my top five pieces of advice for the first week as a new parent. {Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading!}⁠

🍌 Baby-Led Weaning is Actually the Best Lazy Pa 🍌 Baby-Led Weaning is Actually the Best Lazy Parenting Hack 🥑⁠
.⁠
Baby-led Weaning has become a very popular feeding trend in the last decade or so. When I first started having kids, though, I'd never heard of it. After my daughter was born, I assumed I would eventually give her purees when it was time to start her on solid food. However, I knew I would never give her the awful canned baby food in the grocery store.⁠
.⁠
For one thing, I had terrible college experiences (hey, sorority games!) trying those purees and the thought of it made me gag. Secondly, I knew from research that most of these store-bought purees were not made with quality ingredients and often had sugar added. I preferred to feed my baby good food, so I decided I was going to make her purees. How hard could it be?⁠
.⁠
Long story short, I survived one week making homemade purees. ONE WEEK. I discovered the hard way that I did not have time, nor patience, nor energy, to make my kid food every several days. Admitting to myself that I was a lazy mom (i.e., tired mom), I was determined to find a better way. I started researching other methods of introducing solids and (praise the heavens!) I stumbled onto Baby-Led Weaning. 🙌 {Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading about Baby Led Weaning!}⁠

Yes, pregnancy is a blessing. But no, you don’t Yes, pregnancy is a blessing. But no, you don’t have to love every minute of it to be a good mom. Just because you might not like moments (or days or weeks) of being pregnant, it doesn’t mean you don’t want your baby or don’t love your baby or that you’re ungrateful to be pregnant. Pregnancy is a lot of work and can be crazy uncomfortable and exhausting. But, of course, you love your baby. It’s okay to be tired and over it and ready to meet your baby. And yes, you are still a good mom. ❤️

❤️ Low Cost Date Night Ideas for Couples on a ❤️ Low Cost Date Night Ideas for Couples on a Budget ❤️⁠
.⁠
Ah, #dating. Do you remember those days? After #marriage and a baby, dating your partner is probably the last thing on your mind. I get it. Dating is expensive. It takes time. It takes energy. These are things you may be lacking as a busy couple. But, there are low cost #datenight ideas you can incorporate into your busy schedule and I think you should. Why? Because dating your partner now is more important than ever.⁠
.⁠
Not only is dating after you are #married incredibly beneficial to your marriage, it's also really important to the rest of your #family dynamic. When mom and dad are happy and show #love toward one another, kids can feel that energy. The same is true when mom and dad aren't happy. For these reasons, date night should be one of the most important appointments on that very busy family calendar!⁠
.⁠
With a little planning, you can incorporate date night back into your schedule. Start with one night a month, for example. Then perhaps try to find time for one night a week. There are a lot of ways you and your partner can invest in one another without spending much (if anything!) and, perhaps, not even leaving the house! Here are some low cost date night ideas you can use to start making your dating life a priority again. {Click 🔗 in bio to check out our low cost date night ideas!}⁠

The early stages of #breastfeeding can be challenging. So many different new things happening all at once. Sometimes new mothers experience issues that they confuse with low #milksupply. Although it is possible, it is actually pretty rare. There are several other factors that can explain the challenges moms face during breastfeeding, all of which are normal.

💜 How to Show Love to Your Partner in Labor 💜⁠
.⁠
Giving birth is a labor of love—with extra emphasis on the hard work behind the word "labor". It’s a time where anything goes, the best laid plans can be instantly reversed, and no one minds if a few swear words slip out now and then. The end result of a new baby in arms isn’t the only showcase of love, however. Oftentimes, the love shown between the partners is just as tear-jerking as the birth of the baby.⁠

How can partners create a positive birth environment by bringing a little love into things? Here are some ways each partner can show love to the other during labor. {Click 🔗 in bio to read more!}⁠
