Fun and Easy Arts and Crafts with Clay
We have 6 ideas that you can use to work with clay. Are you curious to know which are they? Take a look!
- Drawing in clay with pasta!
If you have some pasta remaining in your home, know that you can reuse it to make some beautiful drawings in clay. It’s fantastic to play with little kids, the material is super easy to find and the result is even better! You are going to need clay slabs, and different types of pasta, such as Farfalle, penne, fusilli or spaghetti. You can create abstract designs, patterns or small landscapes creating texture on the smooth surface of the fresh clay with the pasta you have chosen. Then you can colour them and then you let it dry.
2. Clay Coloured Animals
You can make lots of animals in clay. For example, you can make a fish and you can colour it with acrylic paint, or if you want something original you can colour it with spangles. It will be just amazing!
3. Playing in nature
Another tip that you can enjoy in your arts and crafts with clay is enjoying a day in the park finding several nature’s elements with your kids. Then you can print the elements you picked up in small clay balls. After they are dried, you can use them as table’s decoration, or as a paperweight.
4. Clay Vulcano with Eruption
And what a volcano? To sustain the top of it, you can use a disposable cup recovered with clay. After it is dried you can find some recipes to make a volcano’s eruption on the web.
5. Childhood Memory
And what about perpetuating your child’s childhood in the clay? Print your little one hands or feet in the clay. It will be just gorgeous! Who have said is not beautiful arts and crafts with clay?
