Amazing Dried Fruit Christmas Ornaments

Making our own Christmas ornaments with my kids is one of my favorite activities this time of year. One cheap but awesome and beautiful idea is to make some Dried Fruit Christmas Ornaments using citrus fruit peels! Sooooo nice!

Toddler felt christmas tree

This is a great and fun activity for your toddler. Just get some green felt and cut out a large Christmas tree. Then, using different colors, cut out some decorations and make candles, gifts, ornaments and, of course, a star for the top! Put some self-adhesive velcro on the back of each decoration item and your toddler is ready to enjoy it! Again and again and again!!! This works also with plain paper, but you will need glue to get the items to stick, except if you think of another solution, e.g.velcro on both, items and tree.
