I’ve bought a few crafty items for the children. They’re keeping us occupied and very happy, and I wanted to tell you all about this one in particular, as we just love it!
I ordered the Djeco Light Clay Critters from Cr8tive Kids, having bought Djeco before and been impressed with the quality, and these just looked so appealing. The website tells us:
Djeco Light Clay Critters uses the colourful cardboard pieces which can be stuck into the naturally drying modelling clay to create enjoyable characters.
The light clay included in this modelling kit is easy to work with so young children can easily make shapes and it air dries within 24 hours.
The Djeco Light Clay Critters kit includes 2 coloured pots of air dry modelling clay, 61 colourful card pieces and full step by step instructions all beautifully presented in Djeco packaging.
I’m not going to lie – I was as excited as Boo to get going with this kit!
As I’ve come to expect from Djeco products, the box contained superb materials and easy to follow instructions…
And then I’ll let the photos tell their own story…
We have so much fun with this! The clay itself is really light, almost mousse-like, not like the play-doh feel that I’d expected. The critters are all very cute, and every page of the booklet shows you how to make them all. Of course, it’s all reusable, and the clay stays soft and light, so these have been remade more times than I can count now! Boo likes to follow the instructions, so enjoys making the animals in the booklet, but we’re also been having fun creating our own little beasts. I cannot recommend them enough.
There are several more of these light clay kits, too, so I suspect we’ll be getting more at some point..!
Have you tried these before? Are they something your kids might enjoy (or you!)?
