My family created christmas ornament for the tree almost every year. It was always so much fun to hang them up and see all the different fun things. This year I wanted a fun glasses ornament! Here is a fun activity you can do with your kids that is easy and cheap! We spent a total of $3 on this project.
We started out by putting on PJ’s because I didn’t want to worry about clothes getting painted. I also have a plastic table cloth from the dollar store that I laid out! Its a life saver!
Next you will need a pair of glasses, We went to the dollar store and I let the kids each pick out a pair of glasses. It was fun and they thought they were so cool! Here is a pair of glasses we picked out…
Next is the fun part. Set the kids up with some paint. We used some acrylic paint we had sitting around the house. Give them a paint brush and let them have fun.
Make sure to tell them these are special painting glasses, so that they don’t start painting their own glasses! We tried to do mostly christmas colors.
I think they did a great job! After they finished painting, I let the glasses dry and then took a permanent marker and wrote the year on them. Then we took a ribbon and tired a loop around one of the arms.
Now we just need to set up a tree!
