B has been wanting to experiment with clay for a long time, so I bought some air-drying clay and we had a play.
We rolled out the clay and cut shapes. Eventually we made clay Christmas ornaments inspired by My Little Bookcase …
The ornament in the picture was made by J. I helped by rolling out his clay. Both boys found the clay difficult to roll out, but were able to do the rest of the steps in ornament making themselves.
We also got out some googly eyes, sequins, matchsticks, buttons and other small bits and pieces and stuck them in the clay to make monsters, echidnas and Christmas trees. But I haven’t got a photo because my hands were covered with clay.
