If you have a creative child around, there are many great craft supplies to keep them busy, and keep you worry-free. Keep the right supplies on hand, and crafting with your kid can be fun and help you build memories that can last well into their lives.
Clay is a great way to preserve a child’s art and make it functional. Clay creations like pots, bowls, and more can be preserved and used throughout the years. Clay can be molded in to whatever your child dreams up, and it can last a long time. Be creative with your clay to create even more fun objects like the above seed bombs. They’re a messy way to learn about seeds becoming flowers and teach what helps them grow. Here are some more of our favorite clay crafts.
