Clay necklace

How cute are these bitty food charms? Obviously geared towards the older kid crowd, these teeny BFF necklaces would be a fun birthday party project. For smaller artists, create an assortment of beads in all shapes, sizes and colours, then string them into a lovely necklace or a fun backpack charm. Get the instructions: studiodiy.com

Clay pendant

Make a pendant that is personalized, either with just an initial or a full name. You could even add a birthday day or year. It looks sophisticated, but little ones can totally hack it with a bit of adult help. Give them away as teacher gifts (the letters or the school's name, perhaps?) or to grandma.

Clay pens

Forget the clay pen holder (well, make it, too) and get to work on these cool polymer clay pens. Colourful slices of clay are molded on top of regular plastic pens to create this cool project. They’re not too heavy to write with, either. Get the instructions: creativeinchicago.com
