Boredom Busting Ideas - Playing with Clay

Today's boredom busting idea is 'Playing with Clay'. 4

Clay is so under-rated. Clay can be a whole number of things. Clay can be modelled into a range of different shapes, sizes and textures. Clay develops a  wide range of skills and is brilliant for inspiring children's imaginations. 

Play-Doh or air-drying clay is great for experimenting with the different effects you can make. Try using different utensils from around the home to imprint on the clay and make new patterns. 

If you can't get a hold of clay try scrunching up tin foil into little balls and using a bucket as a goal to throw them in to! 

We use clay in our weekly classes as it helps to strengthen finger muscles and help improve and develop hand strength for writing skills.

Professionally delivered

Professionally delivered, fun, arty sessions even during Covid. Keeps everyone engaged in the task(s). My 7 & 10 year old really enjoy going. We've accessed free sessions and a 12 week paid block, delivered as an after school club.

So much fun with Emma!

My 3 year old daughter is having a great time on Emma’s “shapes” course via Zoom! Emma is great at interacting with the children, and always looks at what they’ve made and makes encouraging comments on what they are doing, which my daughter really loves. Emma’s course is great fun with songs and plenty of ideas to expand imaginations!!

Fantastic classes!

Emma is so fantastic! The sessions are the highlight of my daughter’s week. She has produced some beautiful work, and is really proud of what she creates. Emma fosters a supportive, encouraging and fun environment for the children to worK in. I would thoroughly recommend her classes!
