Clay Pot Crafts

 

*Note - If you need to lessen the cost for any of these, you could use small foam cups in place of the pot, and foam balls for heads in place of wood balls.

It will not be as durable.

Seed Crafts


*
We used dried beans, peas, corn, and rice in VBS this year. I put the beans, etc. in those little condiment containers with lids. That way the kids could easily choose one type of bean at a time. You need to use tacky glue with these.I also put the glue in those small containers and the kids used cotton swabs to put the glue on their craft. We put mod-podge on the finished craft

 

Beans Mosaic Use dried beans to make a pretty mosaic. I would add a coat of mod-podge, or spray with an acrylic when finished to preserve it. This is best for 3rd grade and up. Younger students might put the beans in their mouths or ears. This from marthastewart.com

 

Seed Mosaic Craft Step by step help with a seed mosaic from firstpalette.com
