So I am having my children make ornaments because we need 20 of them to take with us to the Cosley Zoo to decorate a tree. They have to be animal friendly/safe and I cannot think of any ideas. Do you ladies have any ideas/instructions for some? Thanks!
When creating ornaments for your tree please use the following guidelines to ensure that they are durable and wildlife-friendly. Materials Recommended for Ornaments: Wooden items, such as popsicle sticks and clothespins Cereal or pasta strung Strung beads Laminated paper Cranberries, peanuts, seed, and suet Fabric, ribbon, yarn Natural items, such as sticks, shells, and pinecones Recyclable items such as soda cans, plastic bottles and containers Materials NOT Allowed for Ornaments: Fishing line Wire Metal hooks Unlaminated paper (not weather resistant) Pipe cleaners Glass Tinsel Due to limited electrical access, please do not bring lights PLEASE NOTE: The ornaments need to withstand the elements of winter. Ornaments can be painted, varnished, shellacked, or laminated (this does not include food items). Water-soluble glue (Elmer’s) is NOT recommended. Please do not hang any ornaments that are valuable or hold special meaning. The trees remain in the zoo and there is no guarantee the ornaments will remain on the trees.
