Four holiday crafts to make as a family

Four Christmas crafts to do as a family

MISE & Agrave; DAY

A few weeks away from the holiday season, children love to make crafts to offer a small gift made with a lot of patience.

A MAGIC BALL

To make this DIY, you need a small glass jar and its lid, plasticine of different colors, glitter and water.

Steps: & nbsp;

  • Fill the lid with plasticine and press firmly to settle it down. Remove the excess. & Nbsp;
  • Use the plasticine to shape a figurine, for example a snowman or Santa Claus. Place the figurine in the lid, exerting some pressure so that it fits well on the plasticine already in place (you could also attach a plastic figurine to it).
  • Fill the pot with water, add sprinkles and close the pot with the lid.
  • Turn and shake the jar to make snow fall on the character inside the magic ball. & Nbsp; & nbsp;

FROZEN CHRISTMAS WREATH

Prepare a foam with 125 ml (1/2 cup) of powdered laundry soap and 125 ml (1/2 cup) of water. Use a mixer to obtain a consistency reminiscent of whipped egg whites. Spread over the branches and fir trees you want to frost. As it dries, the mixture will harden quickly.

PAINT … WITHOUT PAINT

Make a finger paint by mixing 125 ml (1/2 cup) of cornstarch with 125 ml (1/2 cup) of cold water until the starch is well diluted. Add 375 ml (1 1⁄2 cups) of boiling water. Cook until the mixture takes on the consistency of a sauce. Add a few drops of glycerin (sold in pharmacies) and food coloring to obtain the right texture and the desired color.

TIP FOR DECORATING THE FIR

< p> Make garlands by alternating popcorn and fresh cranberries on a thread. Toddlers can use a wool needle that is safer on their fingers.
