Print Making with Clay

We invited the children to create their own prints with classroom materials (shells, rocks, plastic animals, building blocks) and fast drying clay.

First the children had to form a small, smooth surface that would be the original shape of their printing surface. Next children selected their printing materials and had to firmly press their object into the clay. Once the object had been pressed deep enough into the clay, it had to be carefully removed so it didn't disturb the print.

We let the prints dry over night and turned them into necklaces!  Beautiful!
