Here is a fun and unique way for kids to make a lovely Christmas Decoration for your tree this year.
All you'll need:
- Sparkly Pipe Cleaners (we used 4 for each ornament)
Inflate a balloon so it's just the right size for one pipe cleaner to reach around the circumference. Thread some beads along the pipe cleaners and then fit them around the inflated balloon (being careful not to pop it with the sharp end of the pipe cleaner). Gently twist each new pipe cleaner at the base and top of the balloon to add some stability to the finished product.
Once you are happy with the 'look' and overall shape carefully cut the end off the balloon, remove the deflated balloon, tie on some string and hang it from your tree.
This is a great activity to build and enhance your child's fine motor skills too.
