Modeling Clay Scenes {Fun in the Sun}

 |  Uncategorized  |  One Comment


One of my favorite things to do with my kids is to find something nice and cheap and just sit and create with them. When in Hobby Lobby one day, I found some uber cheap modeling clay ($1.99 for 24 colors)..we came home, sat at the table and each of them sat for 1 1/2 hours creating little scenes. 1 1/2 hours! They were completely happy..and what they came up was even better.

My 6 year old really wanted to make a squirrel and his tree, his nut and just kept adding to his scene (that is a mouse with his cheese):

Cute, right?!

My 8 year old wanted to make a large red bird with her nest and eggs (I love the black moutain silhouette in the background..he really thought of everything!):

and lastly, I found my 3 year olds interpretation of an ocean fascinating (she spent so long picking just the right colors and had to place them in just the right places..i think it is gorgeous!):

I loved the cleanup..I find modeling clay to be much better than play-dough because it binds better (so you don’t have the little tiny pieces everywhere!) This was such a fun and spontaneous activity…perfect for any day where you are looking to have some fun OUT of the sun!
