Clay & Twig Hedgehogs

Take some clay & a few sticks & you're all set to create your own array of hedgehogs.


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

To make them we used:
Air drying clay, 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.




We left them to dry over night, & they were ready to play with the next day. 

This is such a simple, fun activity for encouraging creativity, motor skills,  & imagination.
