Kinder Snail Sculptures

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Crayola Model Magic projects. Super easy for the little ones to use and easy clean up.

Materials: Crayola Model Magic, cardboard or chip board squares, glue, acrylic paint, paint brushes, water cups, paper towels, pencil, paint tray, white printer paper.

This is a 2 part project. 1 class sculpting and the next class to paint.

We sculpt the snail shell by rolling out a piece of model magic. I give them a piece of standard  size printer paper to use to roll out on and to measure the length. Then coil it. As they finish that step I go around gluing them down to the card board and I add a line of glue where the body will go. With another piece of clay roll a little sausage shaped body, stick that down to the cardboard. Sculpt the little antennae and stick the to the head. I add a little dot of glue under each as they are finishing them up.

The clay dries overnight. Paint step by step with acrylic paint.
