Description

Come get your hands dirty! Clay Lab for Kids features 52 hands-on projects made with clay, all of which get kids working creatively, and thinking three dimensionally. 

Clay Lab for Kids, a new addition to Quarry's Lab series, focuses on kid-friendly clays--air-dry, homemade, and polymer--that are safe and easy to use at home or in the classroom; no kiln required.

Nashville art teacher Cassie Stephens makes clay a focus of her classes with amazing results. In Clay Lab for Kids, she continues her creative explorations with 52 hands-on projects ranging from 2-D monster magnets and coats of arms, to 3-D bobble-head dolls, Day of the Dead skulls, animal friends, marionettes, and treasure boxes. 

You may not think it, but this is an extremely important crafting medium. When creating with clay, kids are introduced to a wide range of cognitive and manual skills: they'll work three-dimensionally; make figurative models; use their imaginations in making jewelry and toys; design with color; and decorate with paints.
