Foam clay has to be the most amazing invention. Ever. It is so cool what you can create. At the museum, I had the children make little nests out of the brown foam clay – adding sticks to give it the “nesty” look.
We formed our birds by making;
- a large oval for the body
- a small sphere for the head
- a little cone for the nose
- two flatten balls in the shape of an oval for the wings

So simple. A great way to teach three-dimensional shapes in a hands on way!
