In the past years I tried popsicle stick ornaments with my 5th graders. I could have used tongue depressors, but all I had on hand were popsicle sticks. They glued the sticks together on sheets of wax paper. Each child was given five pieces of felt, red black, green, brown and white to start with. Mind you everyone asked for more felt as the creativity went into high gear. I always cut the felt into pieces about 2 or 3 inches square. That way they don't waste felt. The googlily eyes always add that something special. I showed some inspiration pictures that I found on Pinterest and the kids started designing very quickly. Students gained inspiration from their peers. Each one was unique in their own charming way.
The facial expressions are priceless!

Some were completely covered in felt, as you can see with this snowman, while others just had tiny felt pieces for accents.
Each one has the date on the back. Hopefully, the kids can look back in years to come and have fond memories of making each one when they were in 5th grade.
I guess I'm biased, but I think they are very cute!
