Easy Christmas Art Activity with a Free Template

Hi Friends,

I wanted to share our Christmas ornament art with you. Not only were they ridiculously easy to make, but they turned out so well! We put these in our gym as part of our Christmas concert decorations and they looked bright and sparkly.

EASY Steps:
  1. Photocopy the ornament shape. Click here for your copy. The ornament is on 8.5x11 but I enlarged it to 11x14 on the photocopier.
  2. Lay out the tempera paints.
  3. Show the kids some pictures of ornaments for a little inspiration. There are lots right here. Talk about the different designs and colour choices.
  4. Let them PAINT!
  5. When the ornaments are dry, cut them out, add some glitter.
Voila!


Be sure to have a look at the fun 'n easy math activity we did with some Christmas ornaments. There's also some free clipart you can grab.

Oh, almost forgot. Here's a super cute Santa that I found in our school. I just LOVE his newspaper moustache.
