I recently needed a quick summer project to create with a small group of kids. Neon Makin's Clay® seemed like the perfect choice! This is a very easy project, suitable for even younger children and I think they will have a lot of fun!
Makin's Clay® - Neon MultiPack
- Sun Clay Cutters
- Clay Tools
- Ultimate Clay Machine®
- Cutting Mat
Stretch cord or thin nylon cording
Roll out each color of Neon clay to setting #2.
Stack the rolled clay pieces. Cut the stack in half, then stack one half on top of the other.
Place plastic wrap over the stacked clay, use smallest sun clay cutter to cut out several beads.
Gently mix together remaining clay to create marbled clay, roll out to about 1/2" and cut more small sun shapes.
You will have two varieties of neon shapes to make beads. Some will show the colored layers on the sides, and some will be marbled. Let clay begin to dry, for about an hour. Then gently press toothpick through the center of each bead to make a hole for the stretch cord or satin cording (either side to side, or top to bottom - your choice!)
Let dry for 24 hours, then let the kids string onto stretch cord or nylon cording to make bracelets.
