Holiday Ornaments for Soldiers Overseas
My students wanted to create a holiday greeting for our soldiers overseas. I had a box of unusual shaped tiles that looked to resemble a holiday ornament. I spray painted them.

The soldiers who came to pick them up from Fort Dix loved them and told the kids they were sure they'd be a hit overseas!
