There are two ways you can make the ornament. My five year-old son is very into painting right now so he actually took green paint & a paint brush and used a globe as a model to paint his own re-creation of Earth.
My students and 18 month-old son did it a little differently. I painted different parts of their hands and let them press the paint onto the bulb. In my opinion, these ornaments are a little more unique because it's got each child's individual touch, making each ornament an one-of-a -kind.
Above is a closer look at the tag on the ornament, it reads:
"Giving you a little. . .Peace on Earth, this Holiday Season!Merry Christmas 2012! Love, -----"
Mommy Tip: On the ornaments my boys made for our family, friends, and neighbors I had my younger son, Payton, paint and my older son, EJ, write "PEACE". I then added the phrase, "The Earth was painted by Payton and the Peace was written by EJ." to the ornament tag. If you would like the tags in a word document send me a quick email and I will get them to you.
