How To Make It

1. Start by rolling out the clay until it’s about 5mm in thickness.

2. Wet the kitchen knife and slice the clay slab into long thin strips (wetting the knife will help the clay slide off easily).

3. Stamp your resolution words or wishes into the clay and make a hole at the opposite end of the strip (for the twine) and leave to dry. Follow the clay packet’s instructions re-drying as brands will vary – oven baking speeds the drying and hardening process along for most brands.

If you don’t have letter stamps just use a toothpick to carefully etch your words in the clay.

4. When dry add your twine hanging loops and when all are hanging on your tree hold hands and… make a wish.

Enjoy celebrating the new year together as a family.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
