Over the Thanksgiving break the girls spent the afternoon painting Christmas tree ornaments. We had found ornament kits at Dollar Tree. They even included paint but it was limited to three colors and terribly difficult to open. We opted to use our own acrylic paints instead.
Once the girls finished painting them we let them dry overnight. I sprayed each side with two coats of Varathane I had in the garage to seal them. Then we tied the gold string, included in the kits, onto each one after they were completely dry.
The girls each selected an ornament to give away and one to keep for our tree. I think they did a wonderful job on these ornaments. It was a super fun project for them to enjoy.
