  3. They'll be able to do any creation they want. My son cut strips of foam to resemble a Christmas tree and topped it off with a sticker star. The hot glue green is the base he says.
  4. He used a scrap piece of a sticker to cut a square for the ornament cap.
  5. He finished it off with pipe cleaner bent as an ornament hanger and secured that with tape. I wrote JOY. His ornament is ready to hang on the tree!
