I am doing a series of blogs heading up to 1/2 term to give you some great ideas of things to do with your kids.
This is a great little project to do at the start of the week. You use air drying clay available at most good craft or art supply shops, it takes a good 48 hours to dry so plan do do this early in the week so that you can finish them with paint at the end of the week.
You will need:
Das Modelling clay in white
Rolling pins but not your special home baking one just a cheap one for kids play dough etc!!
Items to print with wood blocks, lace textured items.
Make sure you put paper down and really keep everything away from your best furniture this can get a bit messy!
You need to add water to the clay to make it pliable, then roll it out and cut various shapes.
We did lots of hearts and some stars and butterflies.
Then we used various printing blocks and lace to add pattern.
Leave them all to dry then give them a coat of matt varnish to give them a professional finish!
When they are all painted the wonderful patterns really stand out well.
The kids were so pleased with them that they even plan to send Daddy to work with them to sell for a £1 how industrious
Of them! And Naomi has already given one to her teacher.
Happy creating and do comment and let me know how you get on creating with your kids. XSee you back here soon
