This would be a great kids craft to try this week.
Use hot glue to form your ornament base with the cardboard strips. I applied a small amount of glue to the centers and pushed each piece together.
To turn this into a fun kids craft for younger children use Elmer's glue instead of a hot glue gun. Skip the paint step and use markers and/or other fun embellishments (rhinestones, stickers, etc.).
