Can you believe that Christmas is ON MONDAY!?!?! I feel like this holiday season not only snuck up on me but flew by so fast. I’m just about done with my shopping but I’m still frantically trying to finish some last minute items, finalize menus and wrap. Ugh.
This year, I kicked off the season with a small holiday craft brunch with some other Momma’s to paint ceramics from Clay a Go Go with our kiddos. For the past 3 Christmas’s I’ve done ceramic mugs and ornaments with Big Nuggets feet and I love having my coffee out of these each morning.
They are the perfect gift for Grandparents and I always keep one mug for myself. I posted some ideas here for unique handprint designs which some of us did on our ceramics this year.
We had the Clay a Go Go team come with an assortment of mugs, ornaments, plates and platters.
They were so helpful getting the little one’s hand and foot prints just perfect.
Since this was a brunch, I did a simple menu of homemade granola which I adapted from the Pioneer Woman’s recipe and these cinnamon rolls from Two Peas and a Pod – no adaption needed because they are perfection.
I coupled those with yogurt, fruit and Pirate Booty plus juice boxes for the kiddos and a small mimosa bar for the Mommas.
We painted the ceramics at my house and then Devonee from Clay a Go Go took them back to be glazed and fired in her kiln.
Everyone was so pleased with how they all turned out.
Last Minute Gifts
You don’t need a friend with a kiln to do some handprint gifts for people on your list. If you are looking for a great last minute gift, other than this AMAZING candle from Target, that is not only quick and easy but memorable and adorable, you can do any of these designs on a clear ornament or a canvas. You don’t need a team of artists or helpers to make them happen…although I would recommend sticking to feet with the littles who can’t follow directions to not make a fist. Trust me, I learned this the hard way.
