This interesting clay dough egg making art is perfect for making easter eggs that will stay with you forever. You can make anything out of this clay dough.

And this can be done only when you have at least a couple of days’ time with you as the dough needs to dry for a day after giving them the shape. If you find the process of making the clay dough to be tedious, you can give white polymer clay a try.

Most of the children lose their calm easily and at the same time if we take necessary steps to cool and soothe them, they also tend to forget the incident at once. They just need a diversion at that particular moment and we also need to ensure that we divert their minds in a fruitful and beneficial way. We need to make them do something constructive such as this calming tray, apart from giving a soothing and relaxing effect proves to be a great sensory activity too. 

This is an interesting activity for children. It develops children's fine motor skills as well as hand eye coordination and children make use of their action fingers here thus letting them practice their grasping skills.
