Air-dry Clay Workshop for HoneyKidz
27 HoneyKidz came together on a Saturday afternoon (25th of June 2022) for an air-dry clay workshop held at Lifelong Learning Institute. Divided into two sessions, the HoneyKidz, who are children volunteers, had their hands kneading and rolling for 2 hours to make octopus, frog, and teddy bear using air-dry clay.
Air-dry clay was chosen for its fast-drying purposes: kids can bring home their masterpiece immediately. It was also airy and light-weighted, making it easy to use, non-sticky, and fun to work with! The workshop was conducted by freelance art instructor, Mdm Normanisha, who had years of experience teaching art & craft in primary school, keeping the session engaging for the HoneyKidz. Beautiful clay colours such as lilac and blue marble were creatively created by the children when they mixed different base colours together. Accessories such as hat and ribbons were also added to Mr Octopus and Mr Kermit, making the figurines truly their proud creation.
At the end of the workshop, certificates were presented individually by the trainer to the HoneyKidz to commend them on their effort and completing the workshop. Goodie bags comprising of gummies, oreo, chocolate cookie, and many more goodies were also given to the HoneyKidz as a sweet treat to mark the end of their June holidays. Last but not least, every HoneyKidz were given a Happy Meal, gracefully sponsored by a well-wisher, which definitely put a huge smile on the children’ faces! “It is very tasty and delicious!” were their comments while munching on the nuggets and fries. We hope this workshop was a nice end to the June holidays and look forward to the next HoneyKidz workshop! Thank you to the sponsor, parents of the participants, NuLife interns, NuLife Ambassadors and trainer for making this workshop a success!
