Spray paint Legos gold to make a Lego Christmas Tree Ornament

This Lego Tree Ornament is easy to make.  This post actually answers my question of how to make Legos any color you want! I spray painted these Legos and they turned out perfectly. Have you ever spray painted Legos? Below you’ll find how to spray paint any Legos.

This ornament is inspired by our most recent trip to Legoland where they are all decked out for the holidays.

Gold Spray Painted Lego Christmas Tree Ornament

 What you’ll need:

  • Legos
  • 1 plastic ball ornament
  • Tinsel or cotton balls/pom poms for snow
  • Gold Spray Paint

Spray paint Legos gold, super easy!

How to spray paint Legos:

  • Wipe the Legos so they are free from dirt.
  • Spray each of the Legos until they are coated in spray paint. I used this one
    and I did not need a primer. However, if you aren’t sure if your spray paint can coat Legos I would use a primer.
  • Once dried, assemble your Lego Christmas Tree
  • Place the tinsel or other “snow” in your ornament with the Lego Christmas Tree.

 This is a fun craft for kids to do, you don’t even need to paint the Legos if you want them to be colorful!

This Snowman Ornament is a Clever Guy post but I want to preface this with the fact that I used a glue gun and I did the gluing. If you do this craft with your kids, please do the gluing yourself and have the kids help just press them on.

Today I am excited to participate in the Craft Lightning Holiday Edition!

I’ve gotten out the Christmas craft items and we’ve started crafting away. I ordered some styrofoam balls from recently so I made this Snowman ornament with the Clever Guy. This ornament takes only about 10-15 minutes to make and you can make him in a variety of sizes! If you are curious about the carrot nose, I got that on too!

Snowman Ornament


  • Styrofoam balls; 3 different sizes
  • Carrot nose
  • Buttons
  • Wire for the loop
  • Hot glue gun

Cinnamon Dough Ornaments ~ A Kid's Craft!

Clever guy found this creation while going through one of his books. I was surprised that he found a fun activity to create that was only 2 ingredients! These Cinnamon Dough Ornaments are a fun craft in Fall and for Christmas time as their aroma fills up a room with the flavors of holiday time. Kids like this of course because it’s messy! It also smells delicious!  This dough is safe to eat also but I definitely wouldn’t recommend it so be sure to supervise your littles ones when they make these.

Not only are they fun to make and smell fabulous, you probably have the ingredients to make these in your pantry right now!

Cinnamon Dough Ornaments ~ A Kid's Craft!

2 Ingredient Cinnamon Dough Ornaments


  • 1/2 cup of cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup of applesauce
  • Cookie Cutters and Parchment Paper

Cinnamon Dough Ornaments ~ A Kid's Craft!


  • Mix these two ingredients thoroughly.
  • Roll out on waxed paper until about 1/8 inch thick.
  • Use cookie cutters to cut shapes out of the dough.
  • Place cutouts on waxed or parchment paper and poke a hole through the top so you can thread it.
  • Once dry for about 24 hours, thread twine or string through it and tie it. Hang on a tree or just place amongst your decor.

This dough will be very crumbly and dry. It is a lot of fun to mix together but should not be messed with while drying. Make sure it’s flat and isn’t removed from the paper before it’s dry. Handle with care.

These make great air fresheners year round. Encourage your kids to get creative with different cookie cutter shapes! As you can see, we used our animal set from Ikea.

 Candy Science Experiments ~ Fun For Kids!

Candy Science Experiments ~ Perfect kid's activity after a party or Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Instead of sharing a Halloween post with you, Clever Guy and I are going to share one of our favorite things to do with excess candy. While in a kid’s mind there is no such thing as excess when it comes to candy, this is a fun thing for them to do with candy that doesn’t involve eating it! Moms and Dads love it too.

Some of our favorite science experiments revolve around reactions. This means when you do X + Y it = Z. For this candy science experiment, we take a few things from the pantry and use it to create a reaction with our candy.
