For Holiday Piggy, we will need:

    • Needle
    • String
    • Red clay
    • White clay
    • Green clay
    • Black clay

Step 1

To make a Holiday Piggy firstly, you will need to take some white and red clay, mix it to make pink colour clay. Then divide this clay into three pieces: some for the main body, a little bit for the head and the rest of it for ears, snout and limbs.

Step 2

Shape the body part into a little bean, put the head on top of the bean. Form two little triangles and put them on top of the head to make little ears. Form a little rounded cubic  and put on top of the piglet’s face, this will be the base of the snout.

Step 3

Make four little roles from the rest of the pink clay, these will be the hands and legs of the piggy. Add them to the body as shown in the picture. Then for the eyes, form two little white circles, then form even smaller black circles and stick them on top of white circles. Stick eyes above the snout. To finish the snout, add two little red strips on top of it as shown in the picture. To make Holiday Piggy even more jolly form a small green cubic, this will be a little Christmas present that the Holiday Piggy is holding. Add a strip of some white clay on the cubic to look like it is decorated with ribbon and put the box between piggy’s hands. Add a Christmas hat to make piggy ready for Christmas. Lastly, thread the string through the piggy’s hat with a needle and make a knot. Wait through the night till it dries and hang it on your Christmas tree!

Jolly Little Snowman

For Jolly Little Snowman, we will need:

    • Needle
    • String
    • White clay
    • Orange clay
    • Black clay

Step 1

To make Jolly Little Snowman firstly, you will need to take some white clay and form three different size circles. Then put these three circles together to build the base of the snowman. Grab some black clay and form two little black circles for eyes and two little black buttons. Add them on the snowman as shown in the picture below. Take a little piece of orange clay for a triangle and put it between the eyes. The orange triangle will be a snowman’s nose.

Step 2

Grab some more black clay, form a flat circle and little cubic. We will put the cubic on top of the circle and make a hat out of these pieces then place it on the snowman’s head. Thread a string through the needle and then thread the snowman’s hat. Tie the knot on the string, wait until the snowman dries and hang it on the Christmas tree.
