It's getting cold outside and finding activities to keep kids away from the screen can be tricky. I've had great success year after year making dough ornaments with kids ages 3 to 13!
Make the dough, cut it out with cookie cutters and bake on day 1.
Paint and decorate on day 2!
Four cups flour
1 cup salt
1.5 cups warm water
Mix, knead, roll.
Use cookie cutters to make shapes!
Don't forget to poke a hole in the ornament so you can hang it!
Bake at 325 for an hour.
Hang on your tree, make a mobile etc!
You can buy cookie cutters on Amazon that pique your child's interest. Baseball, Star Wars, Peppa Pig, Frozen etc. They even have 3d versions!
