Hi there!  I am over at The Curriculum Choice today, writing about a great little book called Clay Fun.


Clay Fun Art by Oak Meadow - Review at The Curriculum Choice


Clay Fun is all about having fun, working with clay, while building up the finger and hand muscles for handwriting!  There are over 
20 easy to do, fun clay projects in this book.  



We even made a Cornucopia out of clay for one year!

"I love how each project comes with easy to follow, step by step instructions.  It could become a family project! Your whole homeschool could take a Clay Fun break, in the afternoons......."

  2. I love this idea for strengthening hand muscles. I will have to try this with my child who struggles with handwriting.

    1. Thanks again, Jen Altman, for your comment and for hosting the Workbox Wednesday blog hop! Working with clay can strengthen the wrist and hand muscles which helps kids to develop a mature pincer grasp for handwriting.
