I often put foil out for kids as a free time activity
around the holidays. I have a bunch of Mexican tin
ornaments that I put out with the supplies. I did
these with grades 3 thru 6.
Linda - what grade level are you working with?
Curiosity got the best of me... I had to look:
Once I get me computer back - I'll repost all of the
ornament ideas I shared a couple months ago (I may not
have posted them all on Getty though come to think of
it). Linda Woods had some great ones, too. I have them
on my computer.
