African Animal Necklace

This necklace can be given as a zawadi gift, or your child can make it for himself.

Materials
  • No-Bake Craft Clay
  • Animal cookie cutters (optional)
  • String or thread
  • Black satin cord

Directions

  1. Have your child shape clay into African animals, such as elephants, lions, zebras, and giraffes.
  2. If you like, use animal cookie cutters to make the shapes.
  3. You can divide the clay into batches, and add food coloring for each animal.
  4. Make a hole at the top of each animal shape for the thread.
  5. Once the clay is dry, attach each animal to a black satin cord with string or thread, making a knot to keep each animal in place.
