It's Christmas so I got the Doodlebugs busy today making their very own Christmas trees! I've discovered that I love the magical world of Crayola Air Dry Clay. The stuff is amazing... easy to work with and it can be coloured and moulded into just about anything you can imagine.
We used tempera paints to dye the clay (since I bought only white) and they got to experiment with mixing colours... creating swirls etc. and kneading the colour into the clay. Boy did they enjoy this! So each child made one blob of green for the tree and one colour of their choice. Then we all shared the extra colours to make little decorative balls to stick on the tree.
Just put this little guy to sit on something sturdy and voila! A cute little decoration that's extra special because it was made by extra special little hands. :)
Merry Christmas everyone!
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
