My oldest misses out on a lot of the fun that we do in the day because she is at school. Often she comes home and sees a project and wants to do it right away too. After seeing our nature prints, Ally really wanted to do them too.
Since I thought it was a bit too hard of a project even for an older child, I suggested she just use some of the clay to make a sculpture. I called my son in too thinking he would want to do something as well. He soon lost interest. I may have to try again soon with him, but it mights just be that sculpting is hard for a preschooler and much more suited to children older than kindergarten.
