The first project we made were the votive lights. That was in the Easter holidays in 2001. I made all the  canes and the kids just cut slices and pressed them  onto a simple whiskey glass. Then they rolled the glass on the flat surface of the table til it was all very smooth. Then the votives were baked.

The second project were some beads for a key chain in the summer holidays 2001. Again the canes were pre made by me and the kids put the slices on the beads and rolled them in their hand til they were even. Then we baked them. After that the kids had to sand the beads with sanding paper with 3 grits and polish them if they wanted a shiny bead. (See the picture of Jessica).

The third project was a rainbow bead necklace in the summer holidays 2002. I made some easy rainbow canes  together with the kids using a tutorial I found at Polymer Clay Central. After that they made the beads, formed them,  and put them on a wooden skewer to bake. Then we sanded them and put a glaze on them. Finally we strung them on a strong wire.
