Creating handcrafted ornaments can be a delightful tradition. These activities often incorporate math skills like measurement and help strengthen fine motor skills. Not only that, but children will gain an appreciation for traditions and will look forward to giving to others in this season that often focuses on the "getting". Children will also learn the art and education of handicrafts, and create heart-warming gifts at the same time! (I can't really argue with any of those wonderful incentives!)
