I’ve been having the best time making Thanksgiving and Christmas figurines using paper mache clay. The snowman and Santa shown above were made using the paper mache clay over burned out light bulbs. The clay dries to a very hard finish making it a great medium to work with. If you are interested in making the snowman or Santa, go to Paper Mache Clay Light Bulb Snowman and Santa.
I think that the older elementary students would love using this clay method, and they would be making a Christmas decoration that they will treasure for years to come.
