Preschool Valentine's Airdry Clay Hearts
Gather your materials: airdry clay & cookie cutters are from Target. Rolling pin & dough scraper from our kitchen. A cup of water & scrap wood.
1
Scoop a small amount of clay & roll on your wood surface. Add more if needed . This step was easy enough for my 4 year old.
2
Rolling and cutting the heart shapes in action! Here you can see about how thick we made our hearts.
3
We had a cup of water nearby to soften the clay & make it easier to work with. The dough scraper was good to move the shapes from the board.
4
While my little one continued to get messy with clay & water, I used an old mechanical pencil to poke holes in the hearts.
5
We let the hearts dry for about two days per product instructions. Once dry, we used acrylic paints in different shades. Spray paint is also good.
6
Here are the hearts dry, painted & ready to use. I tied fishing line to some for hanging ornaments. Others I used as gift tags.
7
I bought flowers for neighbors & used the heart as a gift tag. On the back I wrote a to and from. Other hearts were shipped to our out of state fam.
