Personal Clay Christmas Tree Ornament

A Great Christmas Tree Ornament Craft Your Kids Will Love

All the Christmas presents I acquired as a kid are gone, but I still have a simple ornament that I made when I was 6 years old, and it helps me hold on to the memories of Christmas when I was younger. Give your child their very own memory by making their own personal clay Christmas tree ornament that will last a lifetime.

Materials You Will Need

  • Air drying clay
  • Wooden skewer
  • Crayola marker
  • Cookie cutter
  • Paper Plate
  • String

Steps To Making A Personal Clay Christmas Tree Ornament

Step 1 - Allow your kid to pick a color that they want their ornament to be, and generously color their piece of clay with it.

Step 2 - Help them knead the clay so that the color gets mixed all the way through.

Step 3 - Form the clay into a ball and then press clay down flat with the back of the paper plate to get a flat and even surface.

Step 5 - Cut out a circle with your cookie cutter.

Step 6 - Let your kid poke a hole in the top of the clay. (This will be where the string will go.)

Step 7 - Have your kid write their name and date on the top of the clay with the wooden skewer, and then draw a design on the bottom of it.

Step 8 - Put in the sun and let dry for at least 24 hours.

Make Your Own Advent Calendar for 2015

A Unique Advent Calendar

"Fifteen more sleeps until Santa comes!" It is exciting for kids to think about Santa and what he is doing, and allowing your kid their own personal advent calendar to count down on will make it even more exciting. Even though this advent calendar looks like a lot of work, it really is easy to put together, and the best part it, each day is filled with something they want to do, not chocolate!

Materials You Will Need

  • Twine
  • Clothespins
  • Glue
  • Paper Decorations Like Trees, Candy Canes, elves, etc.
  • Numbers 1-24 written out on small pieces of paper OR a marker to write the numbers
  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Christmas themed scrapbooking paper
  • Scissors
  • Ruler

Steps Involved in Making Your Unique Advent Calendar

Step 1 - Cut the scrap booking paper close to standard card size (8.5" x 11"). Depending on how big you want the finished project, you can make it smaller or bigger.

Step 2 - Fold the paper into thirds, so that there are three distinct sections on the paper with two crease lines. One side needs to overlap a little on the other side (to be glued down) so take that into consideration as you fold the second side over.

Step 3 - Fold the bottom of the paper up about 1/2 inch and crease the paper. Let the paper return to normal.

Step 4 - Make two 1/2 inch (or however long you made the bottom fold) cuts on the two crease lines that you first created. These cuts will allow the paper to fold up easier when you make your package.

Step 5 - Once you make the cuts, fold the two outer edges on the bottom up. You do not need to glue them down.

Step 6 - Using the two creases you made in the beginning, fold the paper together and glue the overlap that you left.

Step 7 - Glue the remaining bottom paper up to form a sealed envelope.

Step 8 - Let your kid decorate the front of the envelope with your paper decorations using the glue, and ensure that you add the number 1 somewhere on the envelope wither using a piece a paper with the number 1 or writing it on the envelope with a marker.

Step 9 - Repeat steps 1 to 8 twenty-three more times, incrementing the numbers as you go to 24.

Step 10 - Have your child think of 24 things they would like to do this month, and write it down on separate pieces of paper. For example, 'sing Christmas carols' or 'walk around and look at neighbors lights.'

Step 11 - Put one piece of paper into each Christmas envelope.

Step 12 - Hang up twine in your kid's room.

Step 13 - Use the clothespins to hang up each Christmas envelope on the twine.

Step 14 - Watch your kid delight in the disappearing envelopes each day and look forward to the activity inside that they chose for the day.
