    Christmas Ornaments
    By Cathy-Dee

    One really simple idea I do with my kids is to buy the cupcake holders that are metallic (silver). The students spread them open and flatten them and then glue pieces of tissue paper in the middle for colour. You could use red, white and blue for your theme. They do not take long, but look very pretty on a tree because they reflect the light so nicely.

    Another one that can be fun is to make reindeers out of Candy Canes. Just use chenille wire to make the antlers, glue on googly eyes and a felt nose and you have a cute reindeer to hang on the tree.

    You can also usually buy wooden ornament shapes at your local craft store - they are usually not too expensive and they can be painted with regular tempera paint.

    I have a number of Christmas craft sites bookmarked, if you would like them just send me an email.
