Silk Clay insects as pencil head decorations


Make these small pencil head decorations by modelling a Silk Clay figure onto one end of a pencil. Here we have made a bumble bee and a ladybird.

  This idea teaches children about UN Sustainable Development Goal 15, which aims to protect, restore and support the sustainable use of animal and plant life. To preserve life on land, we must promote sustainable forestry and take care of plants and animals.
