Kind of cheesy, but cute. Pinecones with wiggle eyes, red pompom noses,
brown felt ears, & pipe cleaner antlers to create pinecone reindeer. When I
was a cub scout leader we crushed pop cans, painted them & decorated them to
look like Christmas icons (angels, snowmen, santa, elves, etc).
* Rocks painted with acrylic paint and sealed?
* Some kind of large snowflakes cut from gallon milk cartons?
* Wreaths made of wire with strips of color appropriate pastic grocery sacks
or dry cleaning plastic tied in knots around a wire hangar pulled into a
* Stained glass windows - sharpies and transparency plastic?
Just some idea starters.

Subject: [teacherartexchange] outdoor Christmas ornaments
I need ideas for outdoor Christmas ornaments that third graders could make.
Of course I have a limited budget. They will be outside for about two weeks.
