Easy! Craft Stick Ornaments
|The finished projects.|
Puff balls (or glitter - I just didn't want the mess)
Paint (or markers)
Napkins/ cups lids (or anything to put the projects on for drying)
We set out our supplies and I gave Ty and Za a cup lid with a squirt of green paint. I put the craft sticks on the napkins, and they painted - without brushes.

Then we had to wait. The kids wanted to paint both sides of the sticks, so we had to allow the first side to dry.
When both sides were dry, we glued them together to make triangles. Again, we waited for that glue to set.
|Za got right to work.|
Ty sorted his balls by color, and created a pattern for his trees.
|The finished, patterned trees.|
When I started this project, I did not take into account how long the process would be. Everything had to dry. I would have told my kids in advance that they would not have ornaments to wrap within an hour. We honestly worked on these all day.
We Addressed the 8 Intelligences!
Working with color patterns and triangle shapes is mathematical- logical.
