Recently, I stumbled onto a terrific site, Write, Mama, Write, authored by a charming mother named Beth. She uses her blog as a writing outlet and along the way – describes all the wonderfully creative projects her and her son do together.
I’m so happy she posted her Toddlers and Textures project and even more thrilled she’s agreed to let us feature it here on Kids Stuff World.
Like most children, Beth’s son loves to make things out of Play-doh. Fortunately for him, his mom has quite the imagination. After watching her son play indoors with play-doh and various textures, Beth took things up a notch. She took her son on a nature walk and had him collect items with interesting textures. Once they were back indoors, they pressed the items into bakeable modeling clay, she used Sculpey. Beth baked their new creations and just look at the outstanding results.
This simple project is suited for children ages 2 and up, and would make great gifts for just about anyone. The items pictured above were made using pine cones, parsley, sage, and fir needles but you could really use just about anything. Experiment with items you have laying around the house, things you find on vacation or for the zen lover in your life try using some stamped words – Hope, Love, Imagine, Dream.
The possibilities really are endless, try this one with your children, we’d love to see what you create.
