A couple years back I purchased a large quantity of Sculpey oven dry clay. Of course I was thinking we would be making dogs or cats as that is what both kids were really big into at the time. Fast forward to now and the colors I have... sometimes just don't work too well. Guess I need to invest in some more colors besides browns.
It was an inside kind of day so I pulled out the clay and let the kiddos have some fun. Alex makes these clay blobs and puts holes in them. Not sure why but he likes them and plays with them so who am I to say anything?
Kira... my Kira. That silly girl of mine. As you can see by her face she was quite happy with her creation. A clay Pikachu. We did have a bit of a giggle time when she put the brown on his butt. Yup... mommy went there with the potty humor.
I mean seriously... how could I not say anything???
Alex working on his turtle. You can see one of his blob creations in green at the top of the aluminum foil. He worked so hard on this turtle, I was very proud of him. He did it all himself.
Kira ended up with a female Pikachu which I did not realize could happen but I guess it does. Who knew? And she made a chocolate chip cookie for her to eat. The red blob is a chaos emerald from Sonic the Hedgehog made by Alex and his turtle. I did the purple bunny and the headless pig. I was so bummed when that happened. Since then I have fixed piggy and both parts are happily back together. My bunny fell over so the nose and the belly have a bit of a flat spot. I can live with it.
I'm pretty happy that doing this with my kiddos took about two hours and we had so much fun and laughs. I need more clay....
