Jingle Bell Craft

This Jingle Bell on a stick is an easy craft for kids. They love playing with it once it is completed too. The jingling holiday sound fills the home and it makes everyone feel just jolly!

To make this craft you begin with painting a paint stirring stick. The paint sticks are free in the paint department. Because the children were young I had painted the sticks ahead of time using spray paint. The children selected their own stickers to decorate the stick. A pipe cleaner was used to thread through the jingle bell and to securely attach the bell to the stick. Curling ribbon was added for a little extra fluff. When everyone finished their projects we all sang Jingle Bells together while shaking our new holiday noise makers.
