21 Dough Ornaments for Kids

Stars

I think stars make the perfect decoration material to every party. For those of you who think they may not be able to make a perfect shape can use a star shape cutter because I know, your child will find the other way a little difficult. You can then paint them golden, silver or whatever you feel like.

Christmas Tree

I know this would be perfect for a Christmas party but trust me, you can also use a few of them for just any other yearly party as well. Moreover, your child will feel like he has contributed at least something to the party decoration.

A Bracelet

You just have to form a few little circles and using a thread and needle, form it into a shape of a bracelet. It’s your choice if you want to keep just one colour in every circle or paint them different. Make sure you measure your little one’s hand.

Letters

I think every letter will be pretty easy to form. If you are looking forward to creating someone’s name or your child’s name, you can do that.

Numbers

In the same way as you created letters, you can also form numbers. Say, you want to create 2019 or the date.

Yes, you can also create some colourful bulbs. Over the top of it, you can also add your creativity of let’s say, making the bulbs wear a cap or attaching long hair to it or actually, any other thing you feel like doing.

A Lighted Christmas Tree

Creating a Christmas tree would be easy but making it colourful would seem to be much more fun. Your kid just have to insert his/her little fingers into the formed tree. Make sure you do that before painting the tree complete green. And when you finally get those circular shapes, paint them of different colours.

I don’t mean your kid would actually be able to wear them but you can at least create the shape of it.

This seems to be a little time consuming but it’s actually simple. You just have to form a little circle and another circle bigger than that. And then, make the snowman wear all the accessories including a hat, a muffler, buttons etc.
