Premo Sculpey Clay Pendants. Your kids are going to love this one- and I guarantee it will take you back to your own childhood! Who didn’t love rolling “snakes” out of play-doh? The end result of your “playing” are these wonderfully rustic pendants that look like they are forged out of hammered pewter. Are you ready to get busy? Here is what you will need to make your own custom pendants: The first thing you will need to do is condition your clay. I used white clay for my projects, but really any color will work, we will be painting them completely later. When you get the clay to a workable consistency, use a brayer, or rolling pin to roll the clay out into your desired thickness, and size. This will be your pendant base. Then, you have a million options! I am going to walk you through a stamped pendant to show you the process. Make sure your clay base is the right size for your stamp. Start with a base.

All for the Boys - All for the Boys - MOVE OVER PAPER&AIRPLANES - StumbleUpon because the straw plane is in town! I don't know what you call this thing but we referred to it as a strawplane. Whatever you want to call it, it's pretty cool! You'll need some heavier paper (we used 3x5 index cards), a straw, scissors or something to cut the paper with, and tape. You will need to cut 3 pieces of paper about 1" wide and 5" long. Tape two of the pieces together "long ways" and then tape to form a circle. Use the remaining piece to form a small circle and tape the ends together. Now you have a large circle and a small circle. Tape the straw to the inside of the circles placing the small circle at one end and the large circle at the other end. And you're done! Now is the fun part! The boys had to try and fly a straw without the circles to make sure that it wasn't just the straw that was the good flier. Have fun fllying! P.S.
