Art that can be worn is fun for most kids I know. These charms make great gifts, too!

How We Did It

Clay Charms

To start, I worked the clay a little bit to soften it up for the kids.

Emma rolled out her clay and used a butter knife to cut the square shapes. Small cookie cutters would work well, too. A toothpick is perfect to make the hole for the twine.

Emma used buttons to make prints on her charms. This butterfly button was perfect for this.

When they were all finished we followed our clay directions for cooking. We placed all the charms on a parchment lined baking sheet and baked them at 275 degrees for about 20 minutes.

Once they were done and cooled Emma got to painting. She was very excited to see her charms had hardened and could be worn now.

With some paint they were so beautiful! All that was left was to thread these sweet charms onto some twine.

She decided to keep her favorite one for herself.
