  • Cardstock
  • 2” circle punch, or scissors
  • Lamination (optional)
  • Mini-clothes pins (can be found at any hobby store), or ribbon to attach ornaments to tree or garland


You simply print, laminate for durability (optional), then cut or punch out ornaments with a 2” circle punch. Then using mini-clothespins attach each one to a mini-Christmas tree or a string of garland.


Starting on December 1 take down one ornament each day, and do whatever activity is on the back. You can choose to print my activities on the backs (they are included in the download) or you can print just the ornament fronts and write in your own activities.
