Thanks to a Facebook friend, we were introduced to a new craft to create. Not only was it simple but we had all the ingredients already on hand.
I decided to call them magic ornaments because I didn't tell the kids what would happen and the next morning they thought it was magic to see what their ornaments turned into!
Make shapes out of pipe cleaners
Tie a string to the top (in order to hang on the tree when finished)
Mix 2 cups of boiling water and 6 T. of borax in a glass jar.
Optional: If you want colored ornaments mix a few drops of food coloring in
Submerge the ornament into the solution and let sit overnight.
The next morning you will have some sparkling "magic" ornaments! Let dry on a towel and then hang on the tree!
