 I like to put out the materials in order the children will need them. First the ornaments, followed by the bowl of pom-poms for them to select from, and then the fancy pipe cleaners.

Once their ornament is full a grownup can help put the cap on the ornament and attach a ribbon and a little extra decoration (we used those fancy silver bows) to finish the project.
