This clay activity is very popular on Pinterest and I couldn't wait to try it this year. You can find the easy to follow instuctions on the crafty blog 4 Crazy Kings.
We used air-dry clay to create these ornaments. We also added a few extra details. We used paperclips to make feather-like impressions on the wings and a wooded skewer to make the feet. Then we added a paperclip to the top of the head so that we had something to tie our ribbon to.
When they were completely dry they were painted all over with white acrylic paint. Then the kids had gold and silver paint to use as they wished. We glued on dollar store gems to the eyes and added the ribbon.
My photos aren't the best as I was in a rush to get a couple of shots of them on my iPhone before they were sent home before the holidays...
