Yesterday, I posted a blog about the gifts I got my kids and their parents. I showed a picture of two ornaments we made and said I’d explain them today! Here is a closer look at our adventure of making ornaments in the primary classroom!
Oriental Trading Foam Ornament
Last month, I wrote a post on how to use Oriental Trading products for easy age-appropriate crafting for young students. Below, you can see my kids hard at work making ornaments in the primary classroom.
Making Ornaments In The Primary Classroom
- Blank CD
- Hot glue
- Red Cardstock
- Pipe Cleaner
- Kid Picture
Here’s the front of the ornament, where the picture and glitter will go.
And here’s the back of ornament where the writing will go.
I had my room mom come in and glue all the materials together. Then, students write their names on the ornament, and I write the year!
I took a picture of the kids with a Santa hat on in front of our school Christmas tree. Then, I hot glued the picture to the front of the CD.
I didn’t get pictures of this, but I set up six kids at my back table at one time. They painted on glue around their pictures. Then, I sprinkled glitter around their pictures!
I hope you enjoyed these two ideas for making ornaments in the primary classroom. For more Christmas-themed content, check out Christmas Around the World Teaching Ideas.
