Materials

  • Olivia Key Holder Templates
  • Scissors
  • 3 two-oz. blocks sculpting clay in assorted colors (such as Sculpey®)
  • Clay rolling pin, can, or any cylinder-shaped object
  • Non-serrated plastic knife
  • Chopsticks or any tiny stick
  • Glass baking pan
  • All-in-one glue, sealer, and finish (such as Mod Podge®)
  • Foam paintbrush
  • Pushpins or nails

Directions

  1. Step 1s

    Print and cut out Olivia Key Holder Templates.

  2. Step 2

    Knead half a block of sculpting clay until it's soft. Help your child roll it into a ball, flatten it, and then use the rolling pin to roll out the piece until it's big enough to cover one of the key holder shapes.

  3. Step 3

    Place one paper shape on top of the clay layer, then help your child cut around the shape with a plastic knife. Peel away the edges.

  4. Step 4

    Curl up the long tab at the bottom of the clay shape to create a hook. This is where you'll be able to hang your keys.

  5. Step 5

    Use the pinpoint of a chopstick or a tiny stick to poke through the top "bump" of the clay shape to create a ring, as shown on the templates.

  6. Step 6

    Repeat steps 2-5 to make more key holders.

  7. Step 7

    Place the clay key holder shapes on the glass pan and bake at 275°F for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool. (Parents should do this part.) While waiting, have your child cut off the uncolored parts--the circle at the top and the tab at the bottom--of all the paper key holder templates.

  8. Step 8

    With the foam paintbrush, have your child apply the all-in-one glue to the back of a paper key holder image and lay on the top of its matching clay shape. Press firmly to remove air bubbles. Wait for 15 minutes and apply the glue to the surface of the key holder image and the edge. This creates a plastic look of the paper image and will seal it completely to the clay. Let dry.

  9. Step 9

    Pick a spot beside the door and use nails or pushpins to hang the key holders. Now everyone has a very special place to hang their keys!
