Finally, an air dry clay project that is easy enough for kinders, lets students practice some clay skills, AND makes something pretty darn cute.
These well-rounded projects are hard to find, so I am delighted to let others know how my students make these.
- Air-Dry Clay
- Paper plates
- Water / bowls
- Red Gloss Spray paint
- Black Brush Sharpie markers
- Spray varnish, optional
Class 1: Students get clay, water in bowl and paper plate. They roll their clay into a ball, shape it into an egg, and smooth it with water. Let dry on a for a day.
Prep: Spread out ladybugs on a large sheet of cardboard and spray with glossy red spray paint.
Class 2: Students use a black brush Sharpie marker to color the head, draw the stripe and make the dots. Spray with varnish if you want your bug to look nice for awhile.
