Recently, I discovered this:
So, while Stuart was out shooting harmless antler laden animals, the boys and I did this:
It was super easy, but your hands do get messy. The clay works almost exactly like playdough; though next time I'll have the boys roll out the clay on parchment paper. It was a bit difficult to pull the creations off the cutting boards once they were cut out. We used a straw to create the hole at the top of the ornaments and then laid them out for 48 hours (some were a little too thick otherwise 24 hours of drying would have sufficed).
Next came painting!
And a little bit 'o glitter
Another 24 hours of drying...and viola!
Handmade Christmas Ornaments!
They're pretty cute if I do say so myself. :)
