Last minute Christmas decorations

Here are a few last Christmas decorations we made at our home. We made a garland with cookie cutter critters made from glittery saltdough.

For the saltdough you need:

1 cup fine table salt
2 cups cornstarch
1 cup water
1 teaspoon oil

Mix all the ingredients and knead well. You can add some glitter if you like. Then roll out and cut cookies out of it. Let them dry for a day or two (or dry in the oven at 50 degrees for 1-2 hours).

Another project involved Origami cranes. We used this tutorial to make them:

We put five cranes on a string and hung them from a lampshade.

The last project is very popular with the kids. It's Christmas trees made from popsicle sticks. Cut the sticks into several sizes and glue them onto one stick that serves as the foot. Then let the kids decorate the trees with paint, glitter, pom poms etc.
