Making some Ornaments

These are from before Christmas, but it was part of our DIY movement.

Crayola air-dry clay....genius! No baking, no firing, and tons of fun.



My baby's chubby little hands



Sweet little princess hands.



Agile boy hands.




And here they are.
From left to right:
Reece:snowman
Michael (decided to show us all up and sculpt the real reason for Christmas) Baby Jesus
Marisa: Christmas Tree
Mason: Candy Cane
Maya: Stocking

We will soon be painting these. We intended for them to be hung on the tree, but they are made out of clay and I think they weigh about 10 lbs. each.

Amazing!! That's so funny about them being so heavy:) Maybe you guys could make new ones each year and start forming a clay-town...instead of ornaments...;)

I love your new header - way to go!!

Marissa, I am getting tired of you making stuff. Just relax and be lazy for a week...c'mon, I do it all the time and I am happy...except for when I look at other people's blogs and realize how much they do.

What a fun activity-it looks like your kids really got into it. I love the pictures of their little hands. Maybe you could do the whole nativity next year!
