52 Projects to Make, Model, and Mold With Air-dry, Polymer, and Homemade ClayBook - 2017
Come get your hands dirty! Clay Lab for Kids features 52 hands-on projects made with clay, all of which get kids working creatively, and thinking three dimensionally.
Clay Lab for Kids, a new addition to Quarry's Lab series , focuses on kid-friendly clays --air-dry, homemade, and polymer--that are safe and easy to use at home or in the classroom; no kiln required .
Nashville art teacher Cassie Stephens makes clay a focus of her classes with amazing results. In Clay Lab for Kids, she continues her creative explorations with 52 hands-on projects ranging from 2-D monster magnets and coats of arms, to 3-D bobble-head dolls , Day of the Dead skulls, animal friends, marionettes, and treasure boxes.
You may not think it, but this is an extremely important crafting medium . When creating with clay, kids are introduced to a wide range of cognitive and manual skills : they'll work three-dimensionally ; make figurative models; use their imaginations in making jewelry and toys; design with color; and decorate with paints.
