I was going through my summer art archive posts and stumbled upon one of my favorite summer art activities for children.
This clay is not like your typical clay that dries out if you don’t use it all right away. It’s flexible and easy to form into lots of fun projects like beads, animals, and pots. It remains pliable until you bake it. Our family has created many things with Sculpey and I wanted to introduce you to or remind you about this product.
Here’s the link to my original post about Sculpey: Sculpey Projects – Great Summer Fun.
If you’re looking for a book to use along with your Sculpey, I just found a good one at our public library: Clay Lab for Kids by Cassie Stephens. This book has a section on using polymer clay and shares some fun and even practical projects you can create. I have added a link at the bottom of this post.
Harmony Fine Arts Grade 7 plans include a unit on using polymer clay. The book I suggest as the resource for those projects is called Polymer Clay by Irene Dean.
However you decide to use Sculpey this summer, I know you’re going to enjoy some creative time with your children.
