Christmas Pudding Sequinned Ornaments

2nd, 3rd and 4th grade made these delightful sequinned, ‘Christmas Pudding’ ornaments in art this week. Christmas pudding is a pudding traditionally served on Christmas Day. It has its origins in medieval England, and is sometimes known as plum pudding or plum duff. I remember eating it as a young girl and wanted to be the first to find the hidden coin my mum had placed inside the pudding. It was supposed to bring good luck to whoever found it first. Below is a picture of a real Christmas Pudding and the children’s ornaments follow. I think they’re wonderful 🙂 This was a great exercise for those fine motor skills.

    LOVE these ornaments! I had to go out and buy a teeny little Christmas pudding for Connor to try, since this project got him so curious about what his Daddy grew up eating 🙂 Wonder how much brandy sauce is allowed on an 8 year-old’s serving…Thanks for these fun projects!! Angie B.

  2. You’re welcome Angie. When I asked the class who knew what Christmas Pudding was I was sure Connor would say ‘yes.’ But it certainly isn’t something I have ever bought or made. I’ve only tasted the ones my mum made. I was also trying to explain what custard was. Warm vanilla pudding was the closest thing I could think of. Doesn’t sound that appetizing!!!!! I loved this project and I think the kiddos did too 🙂
