This is one of my favorite Christmas drawings for cards. It uses a little positive / negative space and symmetry lesson too.
This is also a good project to bring out the best fine tip markers you have. I love my new Stabilo Fine Lines that were part of my popular Zentangle Snowflake posting. The tips are thin, yet very strong and even withstood elementary school hands.
I recommend this project as shown here for maybe grades 3 and up. They would appreciate the subtle look that happens when you erase the pencil outlines to leave just the implied ornament shape. If you wanted to do this with younger students, they would probably be happier to just draw the ornament outline and trace it with marker before filling it with patterns. It’s still very pretty and a good lesson in creating symmetry.
