Craft: ornament tree

I realized this week that mother's day is a couple weeks and I wanted to make a couple gifts (including one for our own house). I made this simple clay recipe in the morning and it was cool just before lunch. I wasn't sure if Emmerson was old enough to do this project (rather than molding play dough, she picks it apart into tiny pieces and I find it in the rugs for days), but she surprised me. Her and her friend sat at the table for nearly an hour stamping the clay and drawing with toothpicks. 

The ornaments dried after a day. I tied ribbon and hung them on an arrangement we have in our foyer. Looks great, don't you think? The best part is that Emmerson has been pointing out her work all day - she's so proud.
