My grand kids stayed with us over the weekend while Mom & Dad had a mini vacation. We had tons of fun and did a project that I’ve been itching to do for a while. As soon as you begin to feel there will indeed be an end to winter your mind naturally turns to nature, green and things growing. And since everything is still gray and dead outside you must create it inside. This is what we did on a rather cold afternoon in March over the kitchen table.
Several weeks ago , in anticipation of doing this project I sat down with some clay and began to mold little miniatures. This is very therapeutic if you like to work with your hands, easy to do with this air dry clay by Crayola( fyi be sure to seal it with a varnish , or it will absorb the moisture in the terrarium and go to mush. I am still experimenting with what product is best to use….and would love to hear your suggestions.) There is something so magical about taking a lump of clay and shaping it into something!
