Activity 4: Clay Animals (10 minutes), Session 11: Kindness in Nature

In "World of Wonder," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Air-hardening clay
  • Newspaper or a plastic tarp

Preparation for Activity

  • Optional: Cover work surface.

Description of Activity

Children create an animal to take home.

Say, in these words or your own:

We've talked about many different kinds of animals today. Can you remember some of them? [Wait for responses.]

We will use clay to create an animal—any one you choose. It might be one of the animals whose kindness we heard about, or it may be another animal that you know.

Give each participant a ball of clay. Have children share their creations with each other.
