As part of our Autumn themed crafts/activities then we made clay hedgehogs.
First to make the clay you mix
4 cups plain flour
1 cup salt
1.5 cups water
You might need to add a wee bit more water if it is too hard to mould the clay. We made them in to hedgehog shapes, using the end of a plastic knife to mark the eyes.
Then popped them on to greaseproof paper and in to the oven for about an hour at 160.
When they come out you will see they are a little bit golden.
Then mix some red and green paint up to make brown.
And then get painting!
You can then add painted/googly eyes, nose and any other decorations you like!
