Clay Projects for Kids

Clay projects for kids page was written after watching TV news about a baby girl who try to flick a magazine by touching it like she was touching her iPad. 

We all laughed!

After sometimes, we (my husband and I) were thinking that there must be something we can do to help.

We asked school teachers, parents, friends and neighbors what toys or activities that could be best to bridge kids understanding and perception about virtual world and reality?

We don't know! Probably it's because we are not the expert in term of  children brain development.

However, there is one thing we have agreed on. Play with clay could possibly pull the kids from virtual to real world.

With clay the kids learn how to mold and create things around them, understand  the colors and shape of the objects and making their imagination becomes real. A real object that they can touch, see and feel
