valentine's day trinket dish gift

This project is intended for kids ages 6+.
Step 1

Scoop out a handful of clay from the bucket and knead it in your hands until it is soft and pliable.

Step 2

Roll it into a ball, then press it flat with your hands.
TIP: You can use a sturdy plastic cup as a rolling pin, if you'd like.

Step 3

When it is smooth, shape it into a shallow dish, bowl or small tray. Trim off the excess clay using a plastic knife.
TIP: Use an upside-down cup or bowl to shape your clay. To keep the clay from sticking, you can place some plastic wrap over the cup or bowl first. Then, let the clay dry completely in place. It will take several days for the clay to dry completely.

Step 4

Once your trinket dish is dry, paint as desired. Let dry.
