Hi, my name is Cherie Donohue, and I'm going to show you some holiday ornaments that kids can make. So, I have several examples of some different ornaments that you can make at home. The first example are these really cute bulbs. You can buy these clear plastic bulbs at the craft store, you can fill them with anything that's sparkly and shiny that picks up the light from the Christmas tree. You could use glitter, you could use little shiny raffia ribbon, curling ribbon works and you can paint any picture that you want on the front. You can put a name with a Sharpie pen on the back of the ball then the date and it makes a great keepsake ornament. Another ornament that's up here is a soldier using, that's been painted on a clothes pin. This is a traditional clothes pin and it's just painted with a simple blue pants, red top and a little fuzzy hat and a face drawn on with a Sharpie pen. And then, I'm going to demonstrate for you to make this cute little pompom bear. It's very simple and kids really like to make this craft. You're going to take two large colored pompom balls; any color that you want to use. I'm using green. And you can take some tacky glue or a hot glue gun and glue those two balls together to make the head and the body of your bear. Then, you're going to need six smaller pompom balls, any color of your choice; I'm using red. And again, you're going to glue this on the head, two for the ears and then, two for the arms on the body and two for the legs on the body of the bear. Then, you can use a black Sharpie pen, you could use the tip of the end of a paintbrush, dip it in some black paint to dab on two little black eyes or black beads that we use on the bear here for its eyes. And then, just tie on a gold ribbon or a ribbon color of your choice. You could use hot glue gun to put this on or you could thread some embroidery flask through a needle and actually kind of stick that through the middle of the pompom and tie it onto your ornament to hang on the tree. I'm Cherie Donohue, and those are some holiday ornaments that you can make with your kids at home.
