What FUN we had in 2nd grade this week! Glitter, Glitter and more Glitter! Unfortunately we are out for snow today so I am missing one of my 2nd grade classes 😦
I started with only a few supplies!
Wax paper (I bought the cheapest)
Popsicle sticks (4)
I have the children work on wax paper to prevent a great mess. Have the children write their names on the wax paper with a marker so the ornaments can dry and you won’t forget whose is whose.
A drop of glue is all it takes!
Place one drop of glue in the center of two of the popsicle sticks.
Making plus signs or “T’s”. Glue 2 popsicle sticks together.
Another drop of glue in the center of one (1) T.
Place T’s together making a star shape.
Step #5 OOPS! We should have been doing all of this on a piece of wax paper! Please add it now!
Press them together and cover each leg of the star with glue!
Sprinkle with lots and lots of GLITTER!
Step #7 Keep these in classroom to dry then add ribbon.
Teachers only! Use a hot glue gun to attach ribbon to the back for hanging!
It takes a long time to attach each ribbon, but it is worth it because the kids love their ornaments so much! Each of my students made 2 ornaments so that was double duty for me! After I attached the ribbon, I labeled a zip-lock bag with their names on it and delivered them to their rooms so they could take them home to put on their tree! Merry Christmas!
Bags of ornaments!
I absolutely LOVE Christmas time! Not because of getting gifts, but just the whole season, snow on the ground (maybe), trees decorated, fudge, wrapping presents, seeing the kids open their gifts and most of all making Christmas crafts with my students!
I am planning Santa ornaments for 2nd grade.
Tree ornaments for 3rd grade.
Snowflake ornaments for 4th grade.
Of course we will be making more than one thing! Lots of snowflakes and lots of glitter in the next 3 weeks of school! Woo Hoo! Mrs. Sami ROCKS!
