To cheer myself up after a hard day: a polymer clay seder plate and matzah.
What began as two seder plate earrings ended up making Passover for our Playmobil family. I just ease the jewelry findings out of the holes and the plates are tiny-table-ready.
Later, the Kindergartener joined in: “I want to make the three matzahs.” Apparently, he did not think that the three matzot needed to be of a uniform size. I love this.
He also (accidentally) helped make the Afikomen for our little people. I had baked three round, Sculpey Shmura matzot to mimic the hand-made, expensive kind (which is watched / guarded from the wheat field to the packaging, to make sure the end-product has not come become chametz).
And again, we discovered that Polymer clay is not the most flexible plaything for small children. He picked up a piece of Shmura matzah and broke it right in two. Ta da! Afikomen.
So cute! You make me want to play, too 🙂 (Though I don’t have nearly the skill that you do.)
Thanks, Ellen. It’s ALL about play!
Wow! I love it!
Is that a Playmobil house and furniture? I’ve never seen that before. These look just so perfect with your creations! You are so talented!
Thank you, Tanya! The afikomen shot is in a (now discontinued) Playmobil Victorian house, which was a gift from a very generous Bubbe about 14 years ago. It’s amazing.
OMG, seder plate earrings – that is definitely going on my to-do list for next year!!
Belated Chag Sameach to you and yours!
And a VERY belated chag sameach back at you!
Did you paint this clay, or get different colors?
Different colors, Myriam. Way, way easier! If you get the multipacks of the smaller bricks (assorted colors), it should last your classroom for many projects. At my Michael’s, these are cheaper than buying the individual packs of Sculpey.
