In this post, you’ll find enough inspiring clay projects for kids to last at least a year!

30 Clay Projects to Do with Kids: Polymer clay and air-dry clay for kids all year round. Projects for Christmas, Easter, Halloween and Thanksgiving!

Sculpting with plasticine was a staple of my childhood. Ironic since my kids have hardly touched it. Instead those lucky guys have been experimenting with beeswax modeling compound, air-dry clay and polymer clay… With so many varieties to choose from, it’s tempting to try them all at least once. In this post, you’ll find enough projects to keep you going for a year. Clay is very versatile, and together with children you can create decorations for the house, jewellery, utensils and other gifts.
