Every year for Christmas (yes, we’re thinking Christmas already) Santa tries very hard to bring my kids an ornament that is somehow representative of the past year. “Baby’s First Christmas” is a no-brainer, but what about those other occasions you may not find commemorated in the stores?

The brains and pewter-casting ability of the talented folks at f. is for frank have come up with the answer: Visit their Etsy Shop and pick up a terrific Pewter Ornament Making Kit. It contains everything you need to make and bake your creation, which can then be sent back to them and turned into four pewter ornaments made from a mold of your own design.

Kids will enjoy the modeling clay and tools if you want to let him make something for the grandparents and teachers–but believe me when I say I’m glad I didn’t have to share. -Mir
