Team Instructions

Your team is in charge of decorating the Christmas tree at the local library. Upon opening the box of ornaments that you've been given to use, you discover that all of the decorations are broken. You have five minutes to create new ornaments for the tree before the library opens. You will be notified when you have only one minute remaining. You will receive up to ten points each for creativity, communication and cooperation. You'll also receive five bonus points for each visibly different ornament.

Have fun!
