Clay Dough Magic

Materials

  • clay dough (homemade or store bought)
  • milk jug lids
  • plastic film canisters
  • potato masher
  • small plastic animals
  • other objects that would make an interesting pattern

Children enjoy rolling snakes, smashing pancakes and wadding the clay into a ball. Encourage toddlers to poke, pound and roll the clay. It is more important that they enjoy playing with clay rather than creating something. Clay dough magic comes when the ball of clay is recreated into another shape or form.
