Clay & Twig Hedgehogs


These cute clay creations are so simple & fun to make.

We used:
Air drying clay
Thin small twigs
Googly eyes

Minnie collected the twigs we needed from the garden & then snapped them into the desired length. She then rolled a ball of clay & moulded it into a egg shape (with a little help from Mummy).

She pushed down one end of the egg shape to make a flatter surface for the hedgehog's face, then set to work adding the twigs to make the spines for the hedgehog's back.

As you can see Minnie was keen to add the twigs!

Adding some eyes


We left them to dry over night, & they were ready to play with the next day. A fab activity for encouraging creativity & imagination.
