Painted Christmas Ornaments- Kid Friendly too!

I have another kid friendly Christmas ornament for you guys today. They’re cute, fun to make, and easy!
Book_Page_Christmas_ornaments (15)
No in depth tutorial needed here. I used the same clear plastic ball ornaments that I made the Book Page Ornaments out of, and some leftover paint from the Martha Stewart paints I have. 
I took the top off of the ornaments, and squirted some paint inside, then placed painters tape over the opening. I handed each one of my littles an ornament and told them to shake them like a polaroid picture.  I laid the ornaments on a paper towel, opening side down so excess paint could drip out, and when they were dry, I put the tops back on.
See, simple!
Can I tell you guys one more time how much I LOVE Christmas?! I hope you don’t get tired of me typing that or showing off more Christmas projects, because I have more posts coming!
Hope you guys are having a great Friday!

Seriously? Safe for littles? I might (emphasis on 'might') have to try this w/ 4yo grandson. What is it about l'il boys that they like to bang every.single.thing? :D

Safe for little kids who cannot shake too crazy but for moms like AlwaysinWonder...think twice before letting her shake the red paint ornament. Very fun though!!

Ah, that is like totally one of the best ideas I've seen with baubles. So simple. I've tried everything with my plain glass ones except this! Going to put glitter paint in them! Thanks!
