12 Days of Christmas: Stamp - Shape - Decorate

Stamp - Shape - Decorate

Stamp, shape and decorate with this series of 12 Christmas activity cards, and learn how to craft your own salt dough ornament. Each card in this series is inspired by an artefact from the Museum’s collections, including many that you can come and see on display at Collins Barracks. Have a go at designing and making your own decorations and when you’re finished why not send us a photo of your festive creations by tagging them #MuseumAtHome? We’d love to see them! And don’t forget there are 12 activities to inspire you so keep a look out on our social media pages or check back here and see if you can collect each one.
