Painted Ornaments ...
painted ornaments ... Hello First Grade! ...lots of resources here
Ornaments.JPG
from the website: "The ornaments are VERY easy. You need a class set of clear glass ball ornaments from a craft store such as Michael's or Hobby Lobby, (save plastic holders that they come in). Acrylic paint in bottles works best. Combining only 2 colors (more than that and it all turns muddy brown or gray), ask students which two colors they want and then pour, for example, a bit of yellow in the 12:00 and 6:00 opening of the inside of the ball, then pink into the 3:00 and 9:00 opening of the inside. Tell them to hold the balls and gently turn them up and around (not upside down) to swirl paint around and together inside the ball. Let them sit in plastic tray overnight, drain excess paint completely before wrapping them up."
