It’s coming up, the dreaded winter break, the one the kids love, and the Mom’s kinda dread when the kids get bored.
Originally when I thought about doing this rubber stamped air dry clay project for a quick and easy kids craft project. You know, something quick and fun, not to messy, but that would keep the kids busy. . In reality though, this is a great project for nearly any age if you want to make something but your short on time, don’t want to take a lot of time, have an attention spand of about a second or simply just want to create something cute.
I use Cloud Clay, a very durable air dry clay that gives you a lot of time to work with, yet is very durable when it dries.
If you find that it is too sticky, just leave it out for about 1o minutes. I also used Memento inks by Tsukineko. I love them! They’re juicy and beautiful and the colors are just to die for.
Here’s all the materials you need:
Cloud Clay Air dry clay – white
Rubber stamps of choice
Rubber stamping ink
Roll the air dry clay until it is about 1/4 inch thick
Press in the cookie cutters to cut out the shapes. Remove the excess clay before lifting the cookie cutter.
Apply ink to stamps and stamp on designs.
Use a toothpick to round out a hole.
Attach a jump ring and thread onto ribbon and hang.
You can change the shape, change the stamps, Add words, paint the shapes – there’s just so much you can do with this project to make it your own?
