Step by Step Guide: Make holiday ornaments with your littles

Follow along as we make holiday ornaments as a family!

Hi there! I'm Katie.

I'm a mom of two in Oklahoma City and I'm constantly looking for new ways to make fun memories with my kiddos through engaging, hands-on activities. 

I've learned that the best family moments often happen when we're allowing ourselves to be messy and creative.

To encourage and inspire you to schedule in these moments with your own family, I'm excited to share new crafts and activities with you every month.

Today we're making holiday ornaments – have fun!
