The Clay With Me Craft Kit was developed for you. As the Bots were traveling the globe, they were introduced to Clay. The Bots love clay, a special type of soil mixture that comes from the Earth. Clay can be found along river banks or near streams in many different parts of the world. There are many types and colors of clay.
Clay is really cool. It’s squishy and mushy and stretchy. You can roll it and pat it and shape it into any shape you like. There are so many different things to make. Just look around and notice your surroundings. Imagine yourself building the tallest building ever. One of the important uses of clay is for making bricks. Many buildings and houses are made from Clay. Maybe your home is made of bricks.
Another important use of clay is pottery. Imagine yourself as a potter!! Many potters make dishes, plates, and cups. To finish the pottery, artists sometimes put their clay designs in a special clay oven called a kiln which bakes the clay and makes it hard. This is called firing. People also make jewelry and sculptures with clay.
Your kit has air dry clay. That means it dries by itself and does not need to be fired. You will have several different colors in your kit. Mix them and create new colors. And have a lot of fun!
Working with clay supports the following skills:
- Improves dexterity and strengthens large and fine motor skills
- Stimulates imagination
- Helps with problem solving
- Reduces stress
- Is empowering
