Instructions

  1. Create your Santa Paws using polymer clay.
  2. Roll out a ball of yellow polymer clay and make a small sun.
  3. Place both pieces on a sheet of baking paper and get an adult to bake them in the oven for 20 minutes at 135ºC.
  4. We will be using hot glue in the next few steps. Get an adult to help with the glue.
  5. Always with the help of an adult glue your sun to a piece of wire or wooden skewer.
  6. Ask an adult to help you glue the smaller lid inside the bigger lid.
  7. Glue both the Santa figure and the sun to the smaller lid then cover in yellow plasticine. Pile it up so it looks like sand!
  8. Paint the back half of your glass jar with a simple beach scene. Be careful when handling glass as it is fragile.
  9. Ask an adult to help you spray with sealant once dry or paint with a thin layer of clear drying glue.
  10. OPTIONAL STEP – Add a sprinkle of glitter and a dash of glycerin to the jar.
  11. Fill with water and place your lid with figure attached upside down into the jar. Screw the lid on securely, hold it tightly and give it a gentle shake.
