We Heart Homemade Ornaments!

    I love all these cute ornaments. Maybe I can actually made some of these with my nine year old son. He loves outdoor things! Thank you.

    What great ideas you have. I teach preschool in Phoenix, Arizona USA. I make alot of recycle art with little ones. We just finished a “turkey” mural with recycled materials. I collect applesauce crusher tops from children’s lunches. They are in lots of colors, so they make great art. I am sharing your website with other teachers too. Thanks for sharing so much.
