My daughter loves to create different kinds of mosaics. We use stickers, gems, or beads. I love seeing her think out the pattern and put time and effort into a special piece she is making for a special person. It's very sweet. When she wanted to make a valentine for Daddy, we searched through our bead jar for just the right beads for her mosaic heart. It came together beautifully and was made with lots of love.

How We Did It

Mosaic Heart

Air-dry clay is great for little hands to work with and comes in fun colors.

Mosaic Heart

Emma shaped a few hearts with the clay and started adding the beads in different patterns. She has been learning a lot about patterns at school and was excited to put her new skills to work!

Mosaic Heart

So sweet and simple. The perfect valentine for Daddy.

What brand of colorful air dry clay did you use? I can't find it in anything but white or terra cotta.

My daughter is now mosaic crazy. We did snow flakes, hearts, etc. She wants to do this craft everyday.

My child and I completed Mosaic Heart. We adapted it a little by pushing the clay into a jar lid. My 4 year old son then pushed beads in it for his daddy for fathers day. A lovely handmade gift :o)

We adapted this project to make a coaster for Daddy's desk at work. It started with beads and buttons on a flat heart shape, and then evolved to include a bit of bike chain, screws, nuts, and washers. My son also had fun stamping into the clay with the head of a screw. Then he started making monsters out of the clay with bead eyes, screw arms, nail tails, etc. We're currently waiting for the clay to dry and may add paint later. It was a lot of fun, took up quite a bit if the day, and I'm hopeful that we've made a nice present too
