Clay is an inexpensive tool that can be used to make just about anything. For this craft all you need is some clay and your imagination. You can use the clay to create a game that goes along with your craft. You may encourage your children to mold their favorite thing about spring time into the clay and then play guessing games or races to see how quickly subsequent spring related objects can be molded. Maybe your child saw a squirrel for the first time today. Encourage him to mold the creature that he saw and then let it dry and harden. You can also add another craft to this one. For example, if your son molded a squirrel out of clay, maybe your next craft could be to make a pinecone bird feeder that you can place the squirrel statue next to. See where a simple ball of clay can take your imagination and run with it.
