Cute, free (we did buy paint at Lowe's so we didn't just take sample strips), kid-friendly and quick. Quick seems to be key for us lately as we try to fit in an activity in the evenings before bath and bedtime.
We are still working on our fine motor/cutting skills.
These would be fun to do with other cookie cutter shapes (angel, star, cross) in other color combos as well. They could be laminated for durability if you so desired. We made four total ornaments so each kiddo worked on two ornaments which was the perfect amount of time for us.
