Safety Tips

Squish the clay in your hands first for a minute or so to get it soft and stretchy.

If you don't have a big, square ceramic tile, ask Mom or Dad to use masking tape to tape some white paper or some waxed paper down on the counter top. This is your work surface.

Always follow package directions for baking, and have a grownup help.

Look around your house for cool tools to use, like cookie cutters, rubber stamps, leather crafting tools and old silverware. Ask first, though, before you use it!!

Don't use anything you want to eat with later, like a plate.

Wash your hands after you work with clay. Baby wipes work great.

Building BIG monsters? Use tin foil squeezed real tight for the center, and then just cover with clay.
