In the entry to our school, we have a really big Christmas tree. Each class makes and ornament and then we hand all our ornaments on this tree. It is really fun to see all the different ornaments hanging on the tree. This is our "crafty" ornament. I think I have been doing this since the first year I taught--but he is cute--and different. It is actually a sponge. We put paint in a Ziploc bag, put the sponge in, close the bag up and squeeze away until the sponge is brown. After they dry, we had the stuff to make him cute. The kids love to squeeze all that gooey paint around.
