Here are just a few of the Holiday cookies,
Christmas cookies , pendant cookies,
Winter cookies, ummm...
thingies with a hold in them cookies
that we just finished in my classroom.
It's hard to decide what to call them
when you are trying to think of others during this time of year and respect their traditions and beliefs,
as well as, create an art project that will cover simple clay techniques.
We rolled the clay into a ball...pressed it flat and stamped different designs in the center. Usually the design of choice was the students initials. After the clay was fired students colored the cookie with construction paper crayons and painted over the crayon with glitter paint.
|When told to put the paint on quickly, but lightly one very quiet student whose voice I had not heard this year said, " I'm finished. I put lots of paint on that sucker!!"||Made my day that she talked to me, and the comment was priceless!|
|Even the paper on the painting table was beautiful!|
|Keeping up with popular Southern fashion...notice the monogrammed ones.|
