Clay Roses for Mother's Day

We made these roses with clay, but it could be done with Fimo or Sculpey, or any other kind of air dry clay in time for Mother's Day if you don't have a kiln! The kids LOVED this lesson and they turned out beautiful! I am going to draw out the steps for the bull dog draw along in my next post, thank you for your comments!

                                          make a caterpillar looking line descending from large to small circles

                                           start your roll with the smallest circle first
                                        keep the top very loose and pinch the bottom as you roll

                                                                            Add leaves
                                 many of my students made two in our 55 minute class period
                                              this student made a quincienera

                                   some kids didn't want to do Mother's Day sculptures, so they made creatures!

                                And this is my artist friend, Dali!! The student who made him is letting me keep it!


  1. LOVE IT! Haven't seen that done....will need to try next year!!!

  2. Loved it! I'll try it with my kindergardens...

  3. I will be doing this for Mother's Day next year. It is a great idea. This year we made clay hearts!

  4. Do you have to hollow them out at all or did you fire them solid?

    1. I see this comment is 3 years old... Did you ever find out if they can be fired like this?

    2. I've done it where we cut the but "butt" off of the bottom, and done it where we let it air dry for a really long time, then fired it. I recommend cutting off the bottom, so it wont explode in the kiln.

  5. This seems like a good starter project! I have been looking for new clay projects to try with kids!

  6. I got an idea for my next week clay activity....Thanks for sharing!

  7. I love this rose idea…awesome!!!!

  8. O Wows! Very pretty Clay Art! The rose is beautiful!

  9. In the United States (USA), celebrations of Mother’s Day began in the early 20th century. Here take a llok at mothers day wishes. It is not related to the many celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have occurred throughout the world over thousands of years, such as the Greek cult to Cybele, the Roman festival of Hilaria, or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration (originally a commemoration of Mother Church, not motherhood). However, in some countries, Mother’s Day has become synonymous with these older traditions.
