Polymer clay crafts are an easy project for kids to do. Many children will do at least one polymer clay craft in elementary school. If you plan on doing some crafts at home with your kids, here are some great ideas:
Polymer Clay Bookmark
This is an easy craft that kids can use as a bookmark. The following are the items you will need:
Polymer clay in a variety of colors
Decorative items for the bookmark, such as glitter or stamps.
Rolling pin or old glass drinking bottle for rolling the clay
Start your project by deciding what design you would like your clay bookmark to be. Would you like to shape the bookmark into a squirrel, skunk, or other animal? Pick appropriate clay colors to match your project. Begin by kneading the clay with wax paper and a rolling pin or glass drinking bottle. Make the width of the bookmark Â¼ inch or less. Then, cut the bookmark into your desired pattern. Once you have decorated your bookmark, fire it in the oven for 30 minutes at 265 degrees. Allow the bookmark to cool and coat it with lacquer finish.
