Re-create your favorite hero or heroine from science-fiction stories or fairy tales with the story characters clay craft. Use them for play­­time or as decorations.

What You'll Need:

  • Several colors of play dough
  • Toothpicks

How to make clay story characters:Step 1: Choose your favorite characters and mold them out of play dough. Step 2: Attach body parts by using toothpicks. Step 3: Stick a toothpick or part of a toothpick into the top of the body. Then slide the head onto the other end of the toothpick. (Be careful to keep the toothpicks away from younger brothers and sisters. Let them have their own play dough to play with.) Two colors can be mashed together to form a neat, marbled color. Unfortunately, adding one shape on top of another without toothpicks won't work; the shapes will fall apart when dry. Step 4: Let your characters dry for two or three days. Now use your desktop for a stage and act out your favorite story!
