Pompom Christmas Ornaments

I had this vision of having the boys make homemade ornaments for gifts for those special teachers and our neighbors. My first thought was to have the boys swirl paint around ball shaped plastic ornaments but after a tester before I let the boys loose I decided this
wasn't the way to go.

It was messy, didn't look like I wanted them to and took a long time to dry. Plan B? I dumped out a bag of red, white and green fuzzy pompoms and had the boys stuff them into the ornaments.

This, as it turned out, was perfect. Both of the boys were able to easily fill the ornaments, they look super cute and no drying time was involved. After finishing them off with red and green ribbon
they are ready to be gifted.
