DLTK's Christmas Crafts for Kids
Clay Ornaments or Decorations
Val says, "I use a clay recipe (air dry #2) to make Christmas
ornaments with my kids.
They can paint them when they are dry, and they're really cute."
Thanks to Val for sharing this idea with us!
So many people have provided us with recipes for making clay ornaments.
There are recipes for air dry versions and baked versions as well as one
really neat recipe for cinnamon clay. You can cut the clay with
cookies cutters or shape it with your hands before it dries and paint them
afterwards to make wonderful original ornaments. Take a look and choose
the recipe that will work best for your purpose:
Air Dry Clay #2
Dry or Bake Clay.
Dry or Bake Clay #2 -- Dries whiter than the previous
version, but requires cooking.
Dry Sawdust Clay -- Dries to a very hard finish.
- Cinnamon Dough-- Air dries to make wonderful smelling ornaments!
