Make a Christmas Bauble

This is one Christmas craft activity that both my youngest children recommend. You could go for neatly organised rotational symmetry, but they enjoy a more organic approach :)

You will need a Polystyrene Ball 
some lengths of ribbon
Coloured Headed Sewing Pins, 

Cut the ribbon into short lengths.
Stick a pin through one end of the ribbon into the polystyrene ball.
Wrap the ribbon round the ball tightly.
Stick another pin through the ribbon into the polystyrene ball.
Repeat until your ball is covered in different coloured ribbons.
Use as many pins as necessary to hold the ribbons in place.
Fold piece of ribbon into a loop and pin this to the ball.
Use the loop to hang your bauble on your tree.
