At our house, playtime with clay typically amounts to tiny pinch pots, pretend food, and, occasionally, pretend eggs. The other day, we added flexible clay molds to the mix, and we couldn’t stop making all sorts of cute little critters and shapes. My favorite is the fern, my eight-year-old daughter’s favorite is the butterfly, and my five-year-old opted for the pinch pot standby.
We used white air dry clay and a plastic sculpting tool for cleaning up the designs. There is something so nice about crisp, white clay! Our creations have been brightening the center of our table since we made them, and we all agree that they are charming. You can give them as little love gifts, display them in a dish, or paint them on a rainy day.
