Clay & Rock Nature Crafts

My daughter and I are always trying to come up with new arts & crafts ideas. My 4 year old has quite the creative mind & brings a lot of amazing ideas to the table. We like to think of new projects, but there are still some favorites that we can do over & over again. My daughter’s favorite activity is making nature islands out of clay & items that we collect from our yard. We gather art supplies from our backyard often.

My daughter & I love making paper plate masks. We have made tons of them together over the years.  Last week, I made her a Shopkins one as a surprise. Last, my little girl want to make a craft of her own. She asked me where the paper plates were & I told her. She came back with a bowl instead. She said she wanted to make a girl. “Mama. are you going to make a boy or a girl?” I told her that I was going to make a girl too, just like her.

Paint the paper bowl in a flesh tone & let dry. After the paint dries, glue large googly eyes onto the bowl.
