Paint a herd of wild horses for your wall, your baby’s nursery, or for greeting cards. Here’s a fun art activity to do on your own or with kids. It takes an hour or two and the results are stunning. This article includes suggestions for ways to adapt the activity to younger children, although it works best with kids aged 6 and older. We also have a list of ideas on different ways to use and mount the horse herd. Have fun with this one! N-a-a-a-ay!
If you have access to a kiln, or a friend who does, get a chunk of clay and make some of these cute little critters with your kids. We painted them instead of glazing them this time. Ema and Adia have some tips on making and painting little clay objects, based on their own experiences with this project. Thank you to Gene Hickman of the Helena Clay Arts Guild, for giving us the clay, and teaching the girls some tricks of the trade.
