Kelly Kits Great Giveaway

October 22, 2012 in Art Projects, Best of Both, Kids by MyBestofBothWorlds

Readers of My Best of Both Worlds will want in on this: the Kelly Kits Great Giveaway!  Our Kelly Kits came in the mail and when I told the kids that we have a fun surprise project inside it got their attention.  We opened our kit and they were puzzled when they saw what they thought was sand inside.  We read our instructions and I told them how we were going to turn the sandy powder into clay. The easy instructions were included with the insert that came in our Kelly Kits.   Then we waited until Friday night after dinner to play with our clay so we had extra time to be creative without rushing or worrying about a school night bed time.

Kristen twelve and Sean Eddie four couldn’t wait to squish the clay and both decided the first thing they wanted to create was a rocket ship, astronaut and space aliens.

I took out the informational insert and went to the Kelly Kits website to learn more about the intended curriculum for this month’s educational enrichment.  Kelly Kits calls these “educational conversations”  they are broken down by age group: pre-school ages two to six and elementary ages six – ten.  And while Kristen is older, educational conversation for all ages was about how dough sculpture in ancient China was famous folk art and used as wedding gifts.  Since Kristen was born in China, this made for interesting conversation.

Sean Eddie is learning a letter a week in pre-school and this week was the letter E.  We talked about E word and all made E’s with our clay.  Then we decided to make the entire alphabet.  We all took our favorite letter, talked about words that began with those letters then had to put them in order.  After we took another picture of all our handiwork, Kristen came up with a great game: she had Sean Eddie close his eyes and she took away a letter.  Then he had to figure out which letter was missing.  And of course “funnest” part of playing with the Kelly Kit sculpting clay was squishing it up!
