So it is already the 5th of December! Are you getting excited yet? We have a really giddy toddler every morning when she sees the Christmas decorations and opens her advent bag. What are you up to today?

Where is Our Elf Hiding Today?
The Advent Bag
The advent bag today contains a heart shaped cookie cutter.
Today we are going to be making decorations out of air-drying clay.
Air-drying Clay Christmas Decorations
You will need
- some air drying clay – I used Das
- a rolling pin or something to roll it out
- a small cookie cutter
- a cocktail stick or skewer
- a non-stick surface to roll it out
- some items to imprint the surface
- some paints or nail polish to paint it if you want.
I rolled the clay out onto a greaseproof baking paper. Elizabeth loved it as it really was like using play dough.
We cut out some heart shapes and used various things to imprint the resulting shapes. One of the best things I found were some letter and number shapes to make names with. Make a small hole at the top of each decoration with a cocktail stick or skewer.
You do have to leave the shapes overnight to fully dry before painting. We then used different nail polishes to decorate. You can also use acrylic paints. Finally, thread some ribbon or cord through the little hole and you have a great little decoration.
I think than Nana and Grandma will both love these!
Music Of The Day
Today’s musical extravaganza is another old favourite. Dean Martin and “Silver Bells”. Requested by fellow blogger Jennifer at MightyMamaBear.com
Have a wonderful day! See you tomorrow for another dose of advent joy!
