My girls are a dynamic creative duo and the other day they spent a goodly amount of time under the house scraping out some ‘clay’. I didn’t even know there was clay under the house, but it turns out there was a very clingy kind of mud that could be clay.
The girls molded the clay into faces, pots and little figurines and then left their creations to dry in the sun.
Some of their pieces cracked and crumbled (more mud than clay, I suspect) but some are still standing. Regardless, the girls had a lovely time making things from what they could find around the house and that’s where creativity really begins right there.
Have you got a dirt patch in your backyard?
Is it freaking you out to see the girls playing in the mud in their school uniforms (because it did me!)?
