Clay Charm

A simple activity that kids would enjoy doing. We spent about an hour molding, and about an hour of painting. The result is stunning!

What you need:

Clay charm painting kit (purchase here)

Step-by-step:






   You may use cookie cutters or toys for stamping patterns on the clay.

       
Knead the clay and flatten the clay as per desire thickness.



Shape the clay freehand, or use a cookie cutter to cut the desire shape. Stamp patterns using materials around you. 


Use a hollow rod to punch a hole for the charm string. Air dry it for a day or two.

When the clay is completely dry, paint it or decorate it using your own creativity.

Leave it to completely dry. Paint with a layer of varnish for glossy look.

All done, a homemade gift from kids!
