What to put inside christmas ornaments..clear ones..

I'm wanting to do a craft with the children in making their own ornaments. I thought of having them give some as gifts.

I seen some tonight a pack of 12.00 for $4 at hobby lobby.

What could we stuff in those..The tops are small I thought about ribbon and those puffy mini balls..what else?

What paint pens or something along that line works well on glass? Their were so many I didnt have time to look at them all.

Get some pretty scrapbooking paper... cut it into thin long strips... wrap strips around pencil to curl it... then stuff those in there!

Re: What to put inside christmas ornaments..clear ones..

My 14 month old and 3.5 year old LOVED shoving those puffy balls inside of the glass ornaments. That was by far their favorite!

We also put some paint inside of the balls and taped a cotton ball over the opening. Then we shook them like crazy to coat the inside with paint. The kids loved shaking them too although the puff balls was still the favorite.

We are going to cut up wrapping paper and roll it on pencils and put the paper rolls inside the balls next time we do it!

I did it as a child. We used feathers to put inside. Looks very cool. Another good idea is a few drops of glue and shake. Then put a small amount of glitter and shake. The glitter will stick to glue. Also take paint add a few drops and shake it up. Makes cool swirls of color. Yarn pieces or beads.enjoyo

Re: What to put inside christmas ornaments..clear ones..

This may not be as kid-friendly as the other ideas, but one year I printed a family picture on overhead projector sheets and cut out a circle around it about the size of the ornament, rolled it up and put it inside. Then, it unrolls and you have a see through picture ornament. You may have to try a few times to get the size right.

What about these (depending on how big the kids hands are)...

If the kids are older, what about maybe doing some thumbprint/fingerprint art on the outsides?
