These aluminum crafts can be adapted for any holiday celebration!

This activity is appropriate for:
kindergarten - 2nd grade / 5 - 7 years

You will need:

Directions

  1. Download and print out a copy of the Holiday Symbols Template. Have students cut out the symbol they desire and trace around it to reproduce that symbol onto the flat surface of a disposable aluminum pie plate.
  2. Cut out the symbol from the pie tin using durable scissors. (Note: Younger students may need more assistance with this step, as it is slightly more difficult to cut through the aluminum plate than paper.)
  3. Place the symbol on top of a paper towel. Use the pointed tip of a pen to tap indentions into the surface of the tin shape for a decorative hammered effect.
  4. Punch a hole near the top of the symbol and thread a string through the hole. Then encourage students to hang it up in their houses to decorate for the holidays!
