The lower graders got their hands messy making their clay ornaments. They mixed 2 cups of flour, with one cup salt and one cup water, and ta-da, they made clay. You probably have the ingredients in your cupboard right now.
It is easy! After you make the clay, pat it down flat and use a cookie cutter to make the shape. Use a straw to point a hole at the top. Set aside to dry for a week.

Artwork by Akilah and Janeia (Art Club students also made clay- Akilah used a fork on her gingerbread man and Janeia decided not to use the cookie cutters and sculpted the thumbs up, reindeer and that little bow!)
Makayla made great texture on her ornaments! (texture= look and feel of the fork markings)
Next paint and add fun stuff.
Set aside to dry for a day.
