When my boys were in elementary school, they made cute ornaments for me every Christmas in class. I still treasure them today -- the star made of Popsicle sticks, the reindeer made from a clothespin, the wreath made from macaroni. But, once they hit middle school, the gifts stopped coming and I missed them. So that's when we started to make ornaments at home.
We used old light-bulbs to create this penguin and snowman painted with acrylics. They're fun and easy to make as well as being age-appropriate for teens and preteens. The kids can really let their creativity shine. Make many and give them as gifts to relatives and friends!
