This easy craft is perfect for teachers or friends to hold Christmas treats in.
Clay pots in assorted sizes
Acrylic paints in Christmas colors
Glitter, bows, fake holly leaves, or any other decorating items
Have the kids paint the pots in the color of their choice. The easiest way to do this is with sponge paintbrushes. Let the base color dry completely (if you are decorating the pot with glitter, sprinkle it on while the paint is still wet. This eliminates the need for glue.)
Decorate the pots however you want with a Christmas theme. Some ideas include writing their names, Merry Christmas, and so forth. If you want to write using glitter, use a glue pen and then sprinkle glitter over the letters. Cotton balls can resemble snow or snowmen.
Tie a bow around the neck of the pot and then fill with Christmas treats.
Make sure you keep a close eye on your kids as they make clay pot crafts, as they can break and shatter easily. Most of the crafts involving clay pots are better suited for children who are school aged. These are just a few of the fun Christmas clay pot crafts that kids can do.
