Experimenting with Clay

Recently we tried making our own clay from scratch. Irene and Brooke were excited to help Daphnee make the clay, adding the ingredients and cooking it on the stove and once it was ready it was shared with the whole group so everyone could make shapes and patterns with it.

We realized as we were trying to mold it that the clay was stickier that it should have been. We enjoyed the sensations of squishing and rolling the clay and some individuals made it into shapes of people and animals while others just enjoyed the feel of the clay.

Everyone enjoyed this activity and we will definitely try it again in the future!
