I never thought that fads I loved in middle school would be what my children are into, but Pokemon is one of those that my boys are obsessed with. My 2 year old daughter knows more Pokemon names than I thought possible thanks to her big brothers! So, this year we made some Pokeballs to decorate our Christmas tree with:
I got some red and green ornaments at a garage sale for 50 cents and put them to good use :). I painted the bottom half of the red ornaments with white paint. This required two coats. Be careful, because the red paint on our ornaments rubbed right off if we made a mistake and tried to wipe off the white paint.
After that dried, I painted a white circle in the middle of that black circle. I also put my kids' initials and '16 on the back of each ornament.
Then it was time to adorn our tree with our Pokeballs!
