Oonies Holiday Crafts | Kids Ornament Ideas

Thank you Moose Toys for sponsoring this post. Get crafty with your kiddo and make “ooniements” with Oonies by Moose Toys this holiday season!

Holiday crafts were always my very favorite as a child and are a part of so many of my best memories. The Christmas tree at my parents’ home is decorated with the ornaments my brothers and I made in elementary school and crafting at home. This holiday season has felt so busy but I did make sure my daughters had time to craft with their friends. Last week my daughters invited neighborhood friends over to craft with Oonies by Moose Toys and make the same type of wonderful memories I have from my own childhood.

What are Oonies? The coolest way to create anything you can imagine.

“Using the Oonies inflator you can inflate Oonies that magically stick together and make an ooniverse of creations. Just inflate them, stick them together and then decorate with Oonie Deco Bits. Create and ocean scene, a jungle of wild animals, a sword or some ice cream! Play games, throw ”em or even just pop ’em!”

For a couple of hours my daughters and there friends used their creativity to design their own ornament ideas.

Oonies are not a seasonal craft activity but because you can make truly anything with the inflatable pellets, they were the perfect start to a fun holiday crafting party. The Oonies Starter Pack came with an Oonies inflator, Oonies Pellets, Oonie Connectors, Oonie Deco Bits, Display Connectors and Oonie Eyes. The instruction manual included step by step directions to make very specific creations. We’ll be playing with Oonies again to make the creatures in the instruction manual but this evening was all about the holiday ornaments!

Inflating the Oonies was easy. Simply place a pellet in the inflator, lock and pump.

The process is fascinating to watch and our party guests had fun taking turns with the inflator.

Crafts

Provide children with wrapping paper, bows, tinsel and any other small wrapping supplies to recycle and use for their Oonies creations. Oonies stick to each other so kids can make amazing creatures and designs without glue.

Is your holiday tree currently decorated with crafty ornaments your children have made too?

  3. This is so cute!! As a December baby, quite a few of my birthday parties growing up had holiday crafts involved (one year was a cookie-decorating party, another year we made snowflake necklaces for ourselves and our American Girl Dolls). These are definitely great tips!!
