Sculpting with clay is a great activity for young children because it lets them get artistic while helping them develop their fine motor skills. They also get some practice with color and shape recognition, without even realizing it. Your preschooler will learn the artistic process as she makes her lump of clay morph into a functional hanging wall pot that she'll enjoy filling with grasses she's collected herself. Added bonus? This project makes a great kid-made gift—perfect for Mother's Day, Easter, or any other holiday where your child doesn't want to come empty-handed.
