Using air dry clay as a base material, children create a sculpture using their imagination. By collecting natural materials they’d find in the woods; leaves, twigs and pine cones, they can plan and develop their masterpiece, creating different colours and textures. Children then take their artwork home, let it dry and admire their ‘back to nature’ craft for years to come.
