I am sure that if you are a parent, you dread to hear those words "I'm Bored". This long winter break (16 days!!! ) , I came up with an action plan. I decided that everyday we would do a craft project together, go to see some movies, ride the train to stay with my parents and let them have a sleep over.
Well, yesterday was the day I had down for making 1" scale babies and then we are going to make a little baby's room. I bought a disc about 3 years ago on ebay on how to sculpt babies and thought that would be more fun than using the clay press molds I had. So, I popped in the disc and it did not work!!!
What would a Mom like me do having no skills at sculpting babies in 1" scale?? Well, I took a ball of clay and started trying to make a face just to see if I could do it..... Well I did but I could not figure out how to do a body!! That's when we hopped in the car and went to Hobby Lobby to buy fabric.
Well, I sculpted one face again to show the girls how to do it and gave them each a pack of sculpty (Which I had all ready warmed up) and 3 hours later we have gorgeous babies!!
My daughters are ages 6 & 11 and we had a blast doing this.
This is my 6 year olds babies (One is gonna be for her Barbie doll who just had a baby LOL )
This one is of my 11 year olds babies
and these are mine
Some of their babies look better than mine so Parents, Aunts or Grand moms, please give a pack of clay to kids. It's amazing to see them at work creating things from their own imagination!! Who knows, I was never able to sculpt dolls but one of my girls may actually love doing just that. The best part is, we created memories yesterday by creating them together. I hope this is something they will always remember......
