Project #46 Christmas Decorations

Tuesday, 15 December 2009 by Irene Hoofs

Christmas Decorations by Khali from Little. Lovely.

Making homemade Christmas decorations is a great way of helping your children embrace the spirit of Christmas but it’s often hard to find an activity that is appropriate for different age groups. Here’s a fun Christmas activity that can be modified for children of all ages.

You’ll need:
*Polymer clay (we used Fimo)
*Rolling pin
*Cookie cutters
*Baking paper
*Baking tray
Step one:
Separate the polymer clay into even amounts for each child.
Step two:
Use a rolling pin or your hands to soften the clay.
Step three:
Older children can create any shape or decoration using the clay. Here, we created a wreath by plaiting three equal lengths of clay.
Younger children can use skewers to decorate shapes cut from clay using cookie cutters. 
Step four:
If you wish to hang the decorations from your tree, you can use a skewer to create a hole in the top of the finished decorations.
Step five:
Place decorations on baking paper and bake in the oven according to directions. (Ours was baked for 30mins at 110°C.)
Step six:
Thread a ribbon through your decorations and hang them on the tree or secure them to the top of a present.

Thanks Khali!!
