Daycare ornaments

I’m such a fan of Christmas ornament projects for kids, and these are so cute and affordable as well! You probably already have all the supplies for them if you are running a home daycare. And even if you’re not, you might!

We just love pom poms at Little Sprouts. They are fluffy, cute, and easy for kids with little fingers to pick up. Your kids will love making and decorating their own pom pom Christmas tree ornament. It makes a wonderful keepsake, can go on the tree making it look extra cute, is special and sentimental because the kids made it AND, it gets put away until Christmas comes again so it’s not a big clutter-creating gift for kids to make.

Preschool Christmas ornaments for parents

It makes a great gift for grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles, and friends.

If you are making this with multiple kids like me, I suggest preparing the popsicle sticks ahead of time by gluing them together. This way the kids can just focus on gluing the pom poms on the craft sticks and decorating their own little tree! It’s the perfect hack to save your sanity when doing special holidays with your daycare kids.

  • Craft sticks
  • Wooden Stars
  • Gold acrylic craft paint
  • Craft brushes
  • Green Pom Poms
  • Mini multi-colored pom poms
  • Ribbon or twine
  • Glue Gun
  • White school or Tacky glue


  • Glue two craft sticks together at the top to form a “V”, about 3” wide at the bottom.
  • Glue a third stick to run vertically down the middle.
  • Allow the glue to dry completely. (If you want to make a larger tree like we did, make your “V” wider and add a few more sticks.)
  • Paint your star and allow to dry completely.
  • Glue onto the top/apex of the inverted “V” and allow to dry.
  • Beginning at the top or the bottom, (I found it easier to work from the top to the bottom) begin gluing your pom poms to the craft sticks.)
  • Allow the glue to dry completely.
  • Glue your mini multi-colored poms poms onto the tree as your ornaments.
  • Allow the glue to dry completely.
  • Cut a length of ribbon or twine approximately 7-8”, form a loop and tie in a small secure knot at the end.
  • Allow to dry completely.
