  6. Pull of a small chunk of yellow and roll into a ball. 
  7. Flatten and squeeze the ball to form a rectangle. 
  8. Push the rectangle on the end of the mitten. 
  9. Ask and adult to help you with this step. Use a tooth pick to poke a hole through the base of the mitten. Make it wide enough so your yarn or string fit through it. 
  10. Use glitter glue to decorate your mitten.  
  11. Let the glitter glue dry and the mitten harden for a few hours. Once both are dry string the yarn through the hole and tie a knot.

  5. Create a handle for the mug by pressing it again the back of the rectangle. 
  6. Take small pieces of the white Model Magic and roll them into tiny balls and stick to the top of the mug to make marshmallows. 
  7. Use a metallic marker to write Cocoa on the mug or your own message. 
  8. Let the mug harden for a few hour then tie a piece of yarn or string through the handle to hang your ornament. 

Directions for the Penguin Ornament: 

  1. Pull of a chunk of black Model Magic and roll into a ball.

  10. Pull off a small amount and form a triangle for the beak. Lightly place and press the beak on to the face of the penguin. Save the remaining orange in the zip top back for another craft. 
  11. Use a little piece of red to make a bow or a bowtie for your penguin. Lightly, press on to the penguin. 
  12. Roll small pieces of black Model Magic into tiny circles to be the penguin eyes. Flatten each. Roll two smaller white Model Magic circles to add to the eyes. Lightly press and flatten them onto the black circles. 
  13. Ask an adult for help with this step. Use the toothpick to poke a small hole, wide enough for yarn in the top of the penguins head.
