Summer is here and that means it’s the perfect time to delve into some projects with your kids. Clay Lab for Kids: 52 Projects to Make, Model, and Mold with Air-Dry, Polymer and Homemade Clay is a book we are diving into this summer. We are challenging ourselves to do a new project every single day this summer. A lot of our projects will be coming from this book. I’m a mom of four and three of my kids are boys. They love to be active and try new things. Clay is a big hit with my kids, so this is going to be an awesome summer for us exploring and building.
I love how each project, in the book, is laid out. There are great step by step instructions and pictures. My kids have enjoyed just going through the book to see what they want to create. With there being 52 projects available, I doubt we run out of ideas anytime soon. My kids are homeschooled, so this is going to be an excellent tool for us to use throughout the summer and into the school year.
