Clay day

This past Monday I was asked at a Primary school to do some claying with the kids ages 4-6. I've never done it before but was quite excited to give it a try. I first tried out some ideas on my own kids (5 and 7 years) and made some examples. There were 29 kids and they were divided in 5 groups. We made a large rose, a dinosaur, a little square man and a snail with wired antennae. On the photo you see a small version of the rose which I've painted and used with daffodil bulbs as a gift. Each child made one creation with a mega large heap of clay. I was really impressed with the way the roses turned out. Maybe I'll make a tutorial about that one because it is so easy and impressive for kids to make. I really had a fun morning and got a yellow bouquet as a thanx!

This morning came the January Fat Quarter swap, I was really spoiled with cute fabrics and ribbons in a very neat package ;-) aaaalll the way from New Zealand
