This weekend I took my boys to a ceramics studio and we made this adorable cookie platter using the two older boys hands as reindeer and the babies foot as a Christmas tree. I can’t wait to see it after its been fired. If its even half as cute as it is now it will be a family heirloom for years to come. To manage my brood I had some help from my husband who rushed the two little ones in and out. My oldest stayed with me while I put the details on and made a few Christmas gifts he can give to his grandparents and other friends and family members.
These turned out so cute. To make these I painted my sons palm white for snow. I painted four of his fingers green for elves and one finger red for Santa. To make the Santa finger just a little bit taller than the elves I started painting the face above the finger tip while the elves faces I painted on the fingers. I used a soy based acrylic paint. I just love these and I can’t wait to share them as Christmas gifts for friends and family.
I made these adorable penguin ornaments with my two year old last night. They turned out great. I used black acrylic paint which I poured about a teaspoon of onto a styrofoam plate. I stuck his hand in the paint and then hold out his hand. I placed the Christmas ball in his palm and told him to hold it and then let go quickly. I painted in the white and the little faces. I also put little feet on them and painted a little snow under their feet. These are so cute I can’t wait to share them.
