School Christmas Craft Project
Wednesday, December 22, 2010
Just a few more days until Christmas, and I’m in the home stretch. Still crazy busy with gifts, food and house cleaning, but I thought I’d take a minute to share the craft project I provided for my son’s middle school Christmas Craft day. The kids visited classrooms on a rotating basis throughout the day, and had 45 minutes to create each project they had signed up for. In my class they made photo keychains. I printed hundreds of small sized photos in a variety of subjects, from popular movies to sports to animals. The kids cut their choice of photo to size, trimmed it very carefully and attached it to a silver dog tag.
The next step involved pouring epoxy resin on the tags, which is highly toxic and should not be done around middle school monkeys, so I completed the tags at home and brought them back for the kids to pick up. They were thrilled with the results! Hopefully some of these will make it under the tree as Christmas gifts this year.
Dog Tags, Swivel clips, Jump Ring and Epoxy Resin all purchased from Rings & Things.
