Total Time 1 hour Ages 5 to 8

You'd be hard pressed to find a more fashionable mouse than Minnie. No surprise then that Mickey's little sidekick would have a real knack for sprucing up a Christmas tree -- with her signature polka-dots, of course. These spotted paper ornaments are a blast for kids to create and make a nice complement to any collection. They're also a great gift for teachers and scout leaders.

What you'll need

  • Minnie's Polka-Dot Ornaments template
  • Scissors
  • Scrapbook paper (gold, red, and white)
  • Thin cord or ribbon
  • Glue stick
  • Paper hole punch

How to make it

  1. Print the template and cut out the pieces to use as patterns. For each ornament, cut a top from gold paper, a center from white paper, and two matching ornament shapes from red paper.

  2. Step 2

    Fold the gold top piece in half and cut a small notch in the center of the fold. Tie a 7-inch length of thin cord or ribbon into a hanging loop and thread it through the notch, as shown, so the knot is sandwiched between the paper.

  3. Step 3

    Glue the ornament top to the white center, as shown.

  4. Step 4

    Stack the two red ornament shapes and punch rows of holes in them. Then glue the perforated circles to both sides of the white center.
