Santa Ornaments

My 1st graders created these ornaments, based off an idea I've seen on Pinterest.  I used clay and rolled out some slabs before giving the students some clay tools to trace and cut out their hand.  Then after they were fired in the kiln, we painted red and skin tone in the appropriate areas.  Because my clay fires white, we just left the white alone.  I think this idea was fun to do and my students had a great time with it.

I love how all of them seem to have their own personalities!
