Clay Birds

I love this bulletin board, my friend, Laura makes with her first-grade class each year.   Each child makes a bird for this beautiful mural. You may not be able to tell from the picture, but this takes up a big white board in her class.

This mural is made out of clay.
I always ask her, "How did you get the birds to look so good?"
Here are the steps.

First, she has the kids make their bird on a piece of paper and outline with a Sharpie marker. 

Kids can outline with Sharpie if you teach them how. 

Next, she puts a piece of wax paper over the picture.

Finally, the kids then get their clay to fill in their bird. The results are beautiful!! 

Thanks for sharing Laura!
