WildChild Blog; Clay Creations!

April 20, 2020 by admin

Hi there! I’m Kathryn, the Wildchild Officer for Transforming the Trent Valley.

Thank you for joining me for another blog post.

I found some clay and decided to mould some creatures, and use natural materials to add features. My go-to clay creation is usually the hedgehog because I can make the spines from sticks but I wanted to do something more challenging and since it is Spring I went with a Hare.

Nature Craft!

Clay Creations!

What makes it tricky is that there are slight differences between rabbits and hares:

  • Size
  • Black markings on ears
  • Colour of fur
  • Long legs

I scrambled around the garden looking for natural materials for ears, eyes, nose. Almost forgot whiskers!

Not a bad end result…?
