Create Figurines Through Jumping Clay Sculpting With The Kids!
Maybe you’re looking for a more hands-on experience for your kids? If so, have you ever heard of jumping clay sculpting? Jumping clay is given its name because it’s a highly malleable type of clay that bounces when rolled into a ball!
The whole process of creating figurines with jumping clay is non-toxic as jumping clay is made of harmless water-soluble filler. Painting isn’t involved either as coloured clay can be mixed-and-matched to form colourful figurines.
You can register for a class at Palawan Kidz City, located in Sentosa – making this a perfect highlight for the kids on their next visit to Sentosa! Registration fee is $15 per person. Upcoming classes are happening from 10 January 2022 to 24 January 2022.
