Ornamente din aluat sarat

Miercurea trecuta in cadrul Workshop-ului  „Rockin’around the Christmas Tree” impreuna cu copiii am decorat  mai multe ornamente din aluat sarat. Figurinele din aluat sarat le-am pregatit cu cateva zile inainte de atelier, sa fiu sigura ca sunt bine uscate. Bucuria copiilor a fost mare si de obicei cand este vorba de o activitate ce implica arta si creatie copiii se arata entuziasti. In cadrul atelierului, am facut coliere si ornamente de pus in bradul de Craciun. In limba engleza termenul folosit este Keepsake= amintire/suvenir (something kept or given to be kept as a memento). Nu a durat mult si parintii au revenit cu intrebari cu privire la reteta aluatului, mai ales ca in aceasta perioada este o idee excelenta de a face tot felul de creatii acasa, impreuna cu familia. Asadar, va las reteta aluatului sarat:

keepsake

Ingrediente: 2 cani faina alba, 1 cana sare, 1/2 cana apa. Se amesteca bine si se framanta putin. Cu sucitorul se intinde apoi o bucata din aluat si se fac diverse forme. Eu am folosit: inima, brad, stea, om de turta dulce. Nu uitati sa faceti gaura, pentru a putea pune apoi un snur. La cuptor stau vreo 3-4 ore, la temperatura mica (120 grade Celsius) pentru a nu crapa. Daca doriti aluatul colorat  sau parfumat puteti adauga scortisoara (pentru aroma si culoare), turmeric (galben), sclipici. Eu am optat pentru un aluat simplu si am lasat copiii sa il decoreze dupa bunul plac. Ca aceste suveniruri sa dureze este de preferat sa se foloseasca vopsele acrilice si lipici (cu sclipici) la final. Eu am facut un amestec din cele doua au iesit destul de dragut. Acasa puteti face amintiri frumoase cu amprenta mainilor membrilor familiei, pictati si notati pe verso data. 😉

Cu drag,

Advent Calendar with creative activities for kids!

An Advent Calendar is a special calendar used to count or celebrate the days in anticipation of Christmas.

I didn’t grow up with advent calendars, but I’m pretty sure children adore them.

You can buy one or you can be very creative and make one with your children.

This year I’ll use my “Snowman Advent Calendar” (it’s a special gift from a dear friend, from Austria), but the following years I’m going to make handmade calendars together with my daughter, Iris.

This activity gives children the opportunity to:

  • participate in a holiday tradition
  • exercise fine motor skills
  • generate enthusiasm for the festivities to come

Our calendar is filled with creative holiday activities, written on pieces of paper, but you can also put some small treats in each box if you like.
