DIY ornament ideas for kids?

I'm thinking about having all the kids make ornaments at our annual holiday party. Has anyone done this before? What materials did you use? Any other tips?

We made these footprint plaques. They also make great gifts as well! http://www.kiwicrate.com/projects/Salt-Dough-Footprint-Ornament/718

We just made these out of Popsicle Sticks and buttons, but you could also use sequins, pom poms, or gems. http://www.kiwicrate.com/projects/Button-Snowflake-Ornaments/980

While labeled gift tags, I'm sure these could easily double as ornaments: http://www.kiwicrate.com/projects/Salt-Dough-Gift-Tags/458 These decorative stars seem like they could be used for a variety of purposes: http://www.kiwicrate.com/projects/Salt-Dough-Gift-Tags/458

If you pre-make the white ornaments, I think kids would really get a kick out of making their own snowman ornaments using felt and markers. Directions here: http://spoonful.com/crafts/snowman-ball-ornament

Also, If you don't mind doing a little prep, try cutting thin cardboard into different shapes - candy cane, wreath, snowman, santa hat, christmas tree. Hole punch each one and loop a ribbon through. Then the kids can glue pom poms on the shapes. Some sparkly pom poms like these http://www.amazon.com/CHENILLE-KRAFT-INCH-GLITTER-POMS/dp/B00172UUWS would be fun to mix in too!

You could use cookie cutters to trace and cut out different shapes on cool paper - these newspaper ornaments are cute: http://www.kiwicrate.com/projects/Newspaper-Ornaments/686 or get scrapbooking paper
