We always make a special ornament for the kids to take home for their parents. Of course with Pinterest around…this is not such an easy task anymore! There are so many options out there! Unfortunately, supplies can tend to get very expensive and my budget around this time of year is really pinched. Luckily the teachers on my team and I decided that we should just make ornaments with what we already have. Since I have a giant box of popsicle sticks sitting in my cabinet, I started hunting for DIY ornaments for kids using popsicle sticks. The one I fell in love with is here.
I think it turned out adorable! I found a 32 pack of 4×6 foam from Dollar Tree for $1 and picked up a giant piece of white foam from Michael’s for $0.99! Otherwise this project was free for me! I already had paint and twine so it was only $1.99 for all 26 kids to make! Not too shabby if I do say so myself! I had fun making mine, so I know the kids will love it! Check back for their creations later this week!
