How we did it:
- air dry clay
- cookie cutter - star shape
- googly eyes
- sand - regular or colored
Air dry clay can be a bit hard. Little ones may need it softened a bit before they can work with it.
Once I worked the clay, the kids used a rolling pin to flatten it out and then cut a star shape with our large cookie cutter.
Once we had our shape they pressed the eyes and sand right into the clay. If the sand is not sticking well to your clay you can brush the clay with just a little water.
Once our star fish was covered with sand we set it on top of a ball of newspaper to dry. This way it would dry with the curled look of a real star fish.
He's pretty cute! We want to make a lot more in all different colors.
