Here is a cute little ornament/window hanger we made. I printed a Christmas light bulb template on transparency paper ( you know the clear paper). Then, I wrote the kids' names and the year on them. The kids used colorful permanent markers to color the light bulb! We finished them off with the glittery chenille sticks as hangers. They look just like stained glass when you hang them in the window!
We also made pine cone Christmas trees. I intended to spray paint these green but we had a winter storm come through with ridiculous winds so that idea had to go by the wayside. The kids glued a variety of beads, buttons, and sequins as the ornaments.
The kids seriously worked on these for the better part of an hour without losing interest -- such a HIT!!
Each child needs a waffle ice cream cone (make sure the top edge is flat. There are some cones that sit cockeyed......those won't work.
green icing (vanilla icing + green food coloring)
a variety of candies (gummy bears, m&m's, skittles, mini Hershey kisses, marshmallows)
Peel - able twizzlers (this is the garland - I used red and green)
powdered sugar (duh, you gotta have snow, right?)
