Each Christmas our toddlers and preschoolers make at least one keepsake ornament that I hope their families will cherish year after year. Picture ornaments are easy for kids to make, so we include one in our collection most years. To keep them from being too crafty, provide an assortment of small materials and let them choose what they would like to place on the frame. Wrap them up, and they make a special gift.
