if you are a preschool family and you haven’t opened one of these, go check your child’s backpack and don’t read further!

back when we painted our stars, we also painted these from discount school supply.
then we used the same photos as we use on our picture board.
ms. carol acted as “glitter fairy” one morning and added beautiful glitter designs.
then there was name writing and ornament wrapping. when preschoolers are learning to “write” their names, i always emphasize the importance of scribbling, not perfect letter formation. when children ask for traditional letter formation help, i “write” it first with my fingernail which leaves a little indentation as a guide. but one of my favorite stages is when i call out their name letter by letter and the children make little scribble marks for each letter.

I love the scribble stage. So sweet.
The ornaments turned out great! I will bookmark this for next year.
yeah, they soak up watercolor paints really well…and if i remember right, they aren’t too expensive for what we ended up with. : )
