Painting on glass xmas bulbs

Greetings fellow teachers,

I just had a teacher today donate about 3 dozen light blue, silver, and
purple plain bulb ornaments for me to use. Each bulb has the silver end on the
bulb and a wire ornament hanger connected to it. It was great of her to donate
them to me, and I would love to use them this year. I was curious if anyone
has tried decorating these in the past at the elementary level? I am guessing
that regular tempra paint won't "stick" to the glass long term, I am thinking
in my head that it would scratch off quite easily? Elmers would work if I
wanted to glue anything onto the surface, right? Any tips from those of you who
may have done this in the past would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
