Small plastic novelty fish or animal, one per child
Large paper clip, one per child
Tools and Basic Supplies
Divide the modeling compound into ½ oz. pieces.
Place a piece of modeling compound, a plastic novelty
fish or animal, and a paper clip into a zippered baggie
for each child. Be sure the baggies are sealed tightly
so the modeling compound doesn't dry out! You may
want to even double bag by putting the small baggies
into a bigger baggie or air-tight container.
Class Time Directions
Roll the modeling compound into a ball, then flatten to
the size of a cookie.
Press the plastic fish or animal into the modeling compound,
then remove carefully. If you’re not pleased with
the impression, simply roll the modeling compound
into a ball and start over.
Open the paper clip to make a hanger and then poke
one end through the modeling compound near the top.
Air-dry clay can be used instead of modeling compound.
