Clay projects bring back that fun of childhood play dough with a more sophisticated experience! I’ve been using Sculpey Clay for years, and I happy to share a kid friendly clay project with you today! A huge thanks to Sculpey for sending me the supplies for today’s project and for sponsoring this post.
My daughter loves crafting with me. When she spotted this new Laura Kelly Sun Sizzix die in my collection, she exclaimed, “That sun would make a great top on a princess wand!”
Hmmm….yes, it would.
So when she requested a bookmark for her chapter books (eek, my baby girl is reading CHAPTER BOOKS??), we took inspiration from the Sunshine Sizzix die to create a pink princess wand bookmark.
I have always enjoyed crafting with Sculpey clay, and their Bake Shop clay is the perfect consistency for kids. It is not too difficult to condition (a.k.a., make soft and squishy for shaping), and I knew that it would be the perfect medium for my daughter’s first clay project.
- Sculpey Bake Shop Clay Variety Pack – This has a good selection of colors. We are using the Hot Pink in the pack for this project. Please note that this clay is aged at 8+. Oven baking should always be done/supervised by an adult.
- Premo! Sculpey Crinkle Cutters
- Sculpey Tool Set
- Sculpey Work ‘n Bake Clay Mat
- Skinny wood stick
- Optional: Silver Glitter Paint and paintbrush
Condition a section of the hot pink clay. Using the cool set, roll it out to approximately 1/4″ on the Work ‘n Bake Clay Mat.
Use the Premo! Sculpey Crinkle Cutters (the circle cutter) to cut out a crinkle-y circle.
Lay that circle on top of the clay. Use the tool out of the Bake Shop Clay Variety Pack to cut a “sunshine” from the clay under the circle. Insert the wood stick between the two pieces. ADULTS ONLY: Bake according to the instructions in the variety pack.
Optional step: After baking, paint glitter on the wand for an extra sparkle!
