Peppermint Ornaments

My own kids had a blast making these ornaments, and taste testing these of course. They did all the unwrapping on these. Then watched with pure excitement while they baked.

image

Here is what we used:
Peppermints
Cookie Cutters

Baking Sheet
Cooking Spray
Aluminum Foil

image

We lined the cookie sheet, placed the cookie cutters on top and sprayed cooking spray.

We placed the mints in, if the didn’t fit we placed a few on top of each other. For the snowflakes we placed the mint standing on its side and it melted down just fine.

We bake them for about 7 mins at 350. Just watch tell they are almost flat.

Cooled on the counter. I used a toothpick to make on small hole on top so we can hang on our tree.

Once cool modge podge or they will be sticking!

Silent Night Christmas Ornaments

Here what we used:
Craft wood circles (we got at Walmart I think it was a dollar for six)
Gold paint (also bought at Walmart for $1.50)
Twine
Hot glue
Glitter
Photoshop

We took pictures with a santa hat. Then I emailed them to myself and made 3 inch circles with the faces and added the words silent night.

We painted the circles gold, then modge podged on the photos. I also sprinkled a tiny bit of gittler on before they dried.

On the back I hot glued on the twine so they could be hung on the tree.

Give the kids the yellow, a few different colors of paint, and a q-tips. Let them paint.

Then punch two holes on the bottom of the corn and one in each half of the brown corn shape.
