Monet Lily Pads and Frogs

1st graders just finished learning about the Impressionist Claude Monet and made their own impressionistic lily pad. Then they made a clay frog from Monet's frog pond. We learned about his sons breaking their record of catching 60 frogs in one day. With the number of first graders we have just broke their record and they should now all be set back out in the wild at home. ;) The Model Magic clay they used is very light and feels more like foam when dry. It Is really easy to work with and can be found in the craft section of Meijer or any craft store.This clay is pretty mess free and would be great fun to make more sculptures with this summer at home.
