Polymer Clay Crafts for Kids
Clay crafts are great for kids, young and old. For younger children, working clay helps to build finger strength. Older children can focus more on detailed clay work with tools.
These emoji backpack tags are a fun polymer clay craft for kids and would make a fun sleepover craft idea for older kids. Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we often make small clay charms for necklaces, play figurines, or gifts.

Tips for Making These Backpack Charms
- Don’t roll the clay out too thin or they will break. We made these twice…
- Sanding the clay after it is baked removes anything which attached itself to the polymer clay.
- Paint pens are the easiest for small hands to manipulate, but you can also give them markers.
- Don’t forget to seal these backpack charms to preserve their adorable emoji faces.
