The kids made paper clay ornaments last weekend. That paper clay stuff is pretty fun and super easy. No baking, no weird scent coming out of the oven, no accidental burning. Just a bit of old fashion patience while waiting for the clay to dry.
I helped roll of the dough and the kids used cookie cutters to cut out different shapes.
Then we used holiday stamps to make festive impressions.
Once they dry, they can be painted. The kids didn’t want to paint them, so we are keeping them white, which is still nice. I just used my finger nail to scrape the edges and clean them up a bit. Then we added some red/white cotton twine so they can be hung on the tree.
The smaller ones can by used as gift tags or magnets. I’ve also made some little teeny ones to glue on to ring blanks. I’ll share all this with you later.
