Simple Ornament Craft for Kids

This is the first Christmas that Miss P is actually old enough to enjoy it. 
I wanted to do something fun with her and thought it would be great for her to paint her own ornament.
This is a super easy project and kids of all ages can do this. Miss P is 18 mths old and did great with it. 
Here is the easy how to.
Supplies:
-Paint
-Paint brush
-Wooden Ornament (I bought this star at Michaels)
-Glitter or Stickles (optional)

I gave the star a coat of white paint to act as a primer so that the finished coat of paint wouldn’t soak into the wood.
I got Miss P all set up in her high chair with the paint, ornament, and paint brush. I took her shirt off so she didn’t get any paint on her clothes but you could always use an apron if you have one. 
I put a few different shades of yellow in a pallet and then a gold metallic and let her go to town painting. 
Miss P really enjoyed painting! 
I loved that she was using two brushes.
Once she was done painting, I let the paint dry and then we used yellow Stickles on the star to add a little sparkle but without using messy glitter.
I wrote her name and the date on the back and we hung it on our tiny trees in the living room.
I love how it came out and it definitely isn’t perfect since she is so young but that is what I love about it. 
I can’t wait to do this again next year to see how her ornament will turn out then along with starting this with Miss S.
