This is a lesson I helped with while student teaching with Kathy Bareis. We did this with our Adaptive students. We made small balls of clay and then pressed our shoes into them to make awesome prints on the clay.
We did this a second time (I don't have pictures of it). We pressed other textures that we could find into the clay. We then took small alphabet spaghetti and made words on our ornaments. The kids loved being able to sort through the spaghetti and find letters in their name!
