All you will need is:

  • Air-Dry Clay
  • A brown Sharpie marker (optional)
  • An empty, clean, and dry fruit or yogurt cup

Put clay in to your cup, rounding it at the top, and use the Sharpie marker to make chocolate chips. Let it dry. The carton says that drying takes 3-4 days, but I think it could dry in 1-2. If you want a different “flavor” ice cream, skip the chocolate chips and paint it after it is dry.

Make a Stuffed Animal Hammock!

I don’t know about yours, but my stuffed animals love to chill. So I decided to show you how to make a super cute hammock for your stuffies to relax in! This (and mostly all the other crafts) can be used for dolls too. I based it off of an idea found on dolldiaries.com. Here is what you’ll need:

  • 1 t-shirt (for most stuffed animals size youth medium-adult small)
  • 2 rubber bands
  • Scissors
  • Fabric markers if you want to decorate your hammock

The first thing you do is decorate your t-shirt with fabric markers. Make sure you do the front and the back! Now cut the front apart from the back, but don’t cut around the neck and shoulders . Then, bunch the ends of the shirt together and tie them together with the rubber bands. Then slide the rubber bands onto a tree and put a stuffie in your hammock. Now your friends can relax!
