Creating the Ornament
We recommend setting up four stations for your kiddos to rotate through!
STATION 1: FILLING
At the first station, have students stuff their ornament with theiridescent decorating shred. You'll need something to help get the shred in the ornament. Teri recommends using the eraser side of a pencil.
STATION 2: DRAWING
At the second station, invite students to use the Sharpie paint pens to draw the snowman's face. For younger crafters, you might need some adult supervision for this station.
STATION 3: GLUING
At the third station, students select the pom poms and chenille stem for the snowman's 'earmuffs'.It's best to use a low temp glue gun to attach the earmuffs therefore, for safety, you'll need an adult for this station.
STATION 4: WRAPPING
At the last station, have your kiddos wrap their gift! Simply have them put their ornament in a winter themed gift bag and tie on the gift tag (check out Teri's super adorable FREE printable tag) with a ribbon!
Super adorable, right!? For this and lots of other great activities, crafts, etc., we highly recommend checking out Teri's blog, A Cupcake for the Teacher!!
