Spreading some holiday cheer!

Over the past few years our class has created Christmas ornaments to raise money for a local community outreach. Here are some quick, fun ways to get your kiddos involved in spreading holiday cheer. You are probably familiar with using acrylic paint to create a marbleized look inside the ornament. 
These came out beautiful but took some time to dry. 
Another year we used cut up squares of seasonal tissue paper (about 1 in. each) and used "Modge-podge" to adhere them to the ball. We found that plastic ornament balls were a lifesaver (if you can find them)... much less breakage and worry! Wish I had a picture of the final product... guess I got too busy in the fun of creating...there is always next time. 

Looking for a less messy, quick option? Just add some tinsel, plastic berries, or ting to create a whimsical look and tie off with some festive ribbon.
