How to make a old pony new again

We have found a old my little pony that looks like it has had better days.
This pony has been forgotten about and I can see why. Her hair was messy, knotted, she was dirty with marker and just sad over all. She we decided to give her a make over!
This was her before
First thing to do is cut off the hair, but leave a little so the clay can stick. (we used oven baked clay found at any craft store.)
all ready looking better lol ;)
Next is to paint her.
Note~we painted her first cause we are using colored clay. If you are using white clay then make the mane and tail first then paint.)
After painting we added our colored mane and tail.
I tried to keep the eyes and horn the same but with kids helping it didn't work out 100%.
Then just follow the baking instructions on the clay pack.
Once done baking let it cool fully.
(note~ I had a window open just in case of the pony baking at low temp.s was bad at all, but had no smell issues)
She is finally done!~
I would also say this craft idea is for kids not toddlers as the clay makes it semi breakable.
My almost 5 year old had no issues with understanding this.

Valentines day sensory bin for all ages!

Sensory bins are something you can really make for any age and to fit into any budget. Mine was made for my own kids (ages 6&7) and made from items bought at my local dollar store. A sensory bin is a bin that engages some if not all of the 5 senses. Mine did not include scent or taste but was followed up by Valentines day candy as a treat. Now that my kids are no longer toddlers but still love these bins I try to include things I can use later on for different crafts or decorating. So for this bin I added heart shaped buckets, shredded paper, stickers, necklaces, Valentines day clothes pins, and a heart shaped bell door hanger. Recently I have noticed my kids enjoy adding other toys to play time and I love that. Seeing what they come up with and hearing the stories change as they grow is pretty neat to see. Anyway I hope this inspires you to try a sensory bin out with your baby/toddler/or child, and have a good rest of your morning, evening or night! Bye!
