This is a really easy craft for a few lazy afternoons; all you need is some sort of moldable clay (we used Crayola Air Dry Clay 2.5 Lb Bucket, White) and paint (we used acrylic paint).
Step 1 - Form the clay into a ball, then have your child use their fingers to shape a hole in the ball, giving the clay the shape of a small pot.
Step 2 - Use toothpicks to draw designs on the side of the pot.
Step 3 - Let dry (Drying time depends on the clay used).
Step 4 - Paint.
Step 5 - Let dry. Now you have the perfect place to store little treasures - rings, necklaces, etc.
I like the yellow.
T chose not to make a pot, but he joined us for the painting. In case you're curious he's making a robot, big ship, helicopter. Of course.
