Make a nature-inspired frame based on your child’s drawing. (Or any theme of your choice!) Materials Picture frame Polymer clay (Fimo, Sculpey etc. We recommend the soft version for kids) Clay board Clay tools Paper Pencil/eraser Rolling pin Scissors Baking sheet Craft tray Smock Glue (the product featured above is only for ADULT use!) Directions Sketch out an idea for your frame. (We went with a nature-inspired theme, but you could do anything- an urban scape of buildings, you and a friend etc.) Don your smock and prepare your clay. You may need an adult to help you a bit with kneading it until it is pliable. Roll out your clay with your rolling pin. Create your image using your clay tools, cutting away the unnecessary parts with scissors and your craft tools. Add layers of details, using your fingers, tools etc. Gently lay your pieces onto your frame to make sure that they fit/work. (We ended up using a bigger one than our original choice!) Transfer your clay onto your baking sheet. Follow the product directions regarding baking. Once cooled, have an adult glue the pieces to your frame, following the product directions. Once it is dry, pop in a photo and display your wonderful work! Purpose Working with various materials Developing one’s motor skills (kneading, sculpting etc.) Learning and experimenting with creating texture Safety Notes Use scissors and clay tools with care & supervision. Be sure to follow the product directions, both on the clay and the glue. We recommend that an adult use the adhesive.
