Here’s an easy and artistic idea for making ornaments with your kids. Simply have them paint on min canvases, string with twine and hang up. They add bright pops of colors to your tree and the kids love seeing their masterpieces hung up.

Easy Mini Canvas Ornaments – Materials:

1. Mini 2″ x 2″ canvases

2. Paint

3. Twine

4. Tape (what we used to tape the twine on the back of the canvases, but you could also use glue)

My 4 and 2 year olds loved making these easy ornaments (can you tell which one is which? :)) I also like that it was a fun art activity using their creativity in painting a mini masterpiece.
