Creative Kids

Even without access to a kiln, children and adults can have fun creating with clay using Air Dry Clay. I managed to buy some clay and acrylic paints through Spotlight, who delivered just before the covid 19 lockdown!
We cleared the table of our home schooling efforts, and gathered the tools, rolling pins and cookie cutters we thought we may use to make our creations. Over the next couple of days we worked, leaving the finished artwork to dry before painting them with acrylic paints. Most pieces were dry after 24 hours, however thicker pieces took 48.
I found this to be a fun activity for all my kids, ranging from 5 to 13 years of age. It was neat to see the different creatures that were made, and accessories for future play with their toys, adding to the imaginative storylines.
