Review: Hey Clay Bugs

We got an opportunity to check out Hey Clay Bugs from Timberdoodle’s 4th grade kit. This is an air clay so when left out it will harden allowing for some imaginative play after building. It comes with 16 containers of clay. All the colors you’ll need to make the bugs. With the bugs we’ve made so far you will need a pencil to make the mouths and eye holes. If you want step-by-step instructions for each bug you’ll need to download their app and then add the code they give you in the box to unlock the bugs.


What I like is the clay is soft and easy to use. Since my daughter is only 3 it was a learning curve to forming the shapes but she started to get a better handle of it and really enjoyed playing with it. The app is wonderful and with it she knew what needed to be done and did great job at making the little bugs. 


I did find some downsides. The clay sticks very well so if you want to take a piece off and reform it, it’s a bit difficult to do so best to not push pieces together to much until you’re certain it’s how you want it to look. The second thing I didn’t like is something that I also like about Hey Clay. Tthe clay does harden so you can’t really reuse it. When it does harden though you can have a lot of fun with creative play with your little creatures. 


Hey Clay is definitely something I would get again. They have different kits and it makes a great gift for anyone. I’d recommend this to everyone with kids 3 and up. I love the fun and creativity that come with playing with this art kit. I’ll be added Hey Clay kits to my holiday gift list. 


Update! After the bugs have dried I am extremely impressed at how sturdy these bugs are. They held up to rough toddler play. It may look like the snail received damage but that’s just how he looked when we made him. Timberdoodle did an amazing job picking this for their kit and Hey Clay made such an outstanding art project!

Review: Djeco So Pop

Our daughter loves arts and crafts. Djeco So Pop is another amazing art project that she had a blast doing. I got it through Timberdoodle and it also comes with their PreK Curriculum Kit. The kit comes with 4 different projects and all the pieces you need to put them together. This particular kit came with little envelopes for each project that had sequence in them so I popped out each item for the projects and put them in the envelopes so everything would be ready go when do each one. Djeco also give you a glue stick so you can glue the pieces on the boards but I have found the glue they provide isn’t that great so instead we use hot glue.


What I really like about Djeco art kits is that they give you a little booklet that shows where to put each piece on the boards. It shows you through pictures so if your child doesn’t read yet it’s not a problem. Easy for a young kid to follow and great for the parent because you don’t have to read a lengthy instruction book. 

I’d definitely recomm…
