Grandparent Day Pendant

Grandparents Day Pendent

Use Air Dry Clay and Metallic Kids Paint to help your child create a thumbprint pendant that will be cherished for years to come!



Supplies Needed: Crayola Air Dry Clay, Crayola Metallic Kids' Paint, Toothpick (requires adult supervision), Parchment paper, String or keychain

  • 1.

    Roll a small ball of Crayola Air Dry Clay between your hands. Place on a flat, hard surface and flatten into a circular pendant shape.

  • 2.

    Help your child make a deep thumbprint in the middle of the pendant.

  • 3.

    Create a small hole at the top of the pendant with a toothpick (adult assistance required). Place the pendant on parchment paper and allow 2-3 days to fully dry. The clay will harden, and the colour will lighten slightly.

  • 4.

    Once dry, decorate the top of the pendant with Crayola Kids' Paint. For extra shimmer, use silver Crayola Metallic Kids' Paint. Let dry for 1-2 hours.

  • 5.

    Using Crayola Markers, help your child write his or her name, or write a special message on the pendant.

  • 6.

    To make a necklace, loop string or cord through the hole in the top of the pendant. To make a keychain, attach a keychain through the hole in the top of the pendant.
