    Default easy ornaments for 4 and 7 year old?

    My grandfather has a tree and lights, but no ornaments. The ornaments were all handmade by my grandmother and when she died last year, they were divided among the grandchildren. He wants my girls to make some ornaments for his tree and they are very excited! I need SIMPLE, inexpensive ornaments that can be made by young children out of very basic items. I know all you crafty ladies will have some great ideas!

    We have basics like, glue gun, construction paper, glitter, green and red spray paint, old CDs, lots of nature items, yarn, fabric paint, acrylic paint, fabric scraps.

    HELP!!!

    I remember when I was a kid we made some ornaments out of Orange Juice lids. We just glued pictures that we cut out of old Christmas card on them but it was cute.

    I just wanted to add how special that tree is going to be to your dad. He's a lucky guy.

    You'd have to do the sewing part, but they could do the glueing.

    Let's see-

    Wrap small boxes in gift wrap, add ribbon and hangers. I've used jello boxes, ring boxes, cut down cough syrup boxes to make them square . . . . .


    Cut felt shapes (use cookie cutters as templates), cut 2 of each shape, sew or glue edges together- stuff lightly before completely closing.

    Ice-cream Soda Ornaments

    You'll need: cups, pompoms, string, straws

    You can make a perfect miniature ice-cream soda out of the cups used for communion. First put in a Medium Brown or Pink Pom Pom ball (will be either chocolate or strawberry soda) then a smaller white Pom Pom for Whipped Cream and a very tiny red Pom Pom for the cherry, add a coffee stir (the kind that looks like two straws) cut in half and bent at the top to represent the straws. Can also add string or yarn to be used as Christmas ornament. (sorry, I don't remember where I saved this information from)

    Can use inexpensive ornaments and use glue and glitter to make designs or write names or holiday cheer.
