Today I discovered oven-bake polymer clay.
Well, technically, I knew this existed, but I had never attempted to do anything with it before and had no idea how simple it would be to use.
The girls and I used the clay (they sell it in a variety of pretty colors), cookie cutters and glass beads to decorate all kinds of pretty shapes this afternoon.
I definitely recommend this activity for parents of preschoolers. Nora loved it. She spent over an hour pushing beads into her clay shapes and would have probably kept going if we hadn’t run out of clay.
Look how excited she is watching them bake in the oven.
Later on she told me that “today was a happy day” because she had so much fun decorating her shapes.
I’ll take it.
