We were so exctied when asked to attend the Girlguiding 1st division in Brighouse. We wanted to make it extra special for the 16 girls that attended and came up with the idea to create their very own little girl guide out of JumpingCLAY. 

Our Little Girl Guide

The girls were as excited as we were when we arrived. A few had done JumpingCLAY parties previously and we all, including the 2 leaders, decided to dive straight in and get creating. Making the guide was lovely with each person able to personalise their creations hair colour to match their own. Everyone did a tremendous job and feedback from all was fantastic. 

The inspiration for the little girl guide came directly after another community workshop with St John's 1st Rainbow Group. Here we made their popular and fabulous little mascot - Olivia. Again, so much fun to create and we hope that all the girls that took part enjoyed it as much as we did. 

Making Olivia - The Rainbow Mascot

If you are interested in JumpingCLAY visiting your group, let us create your mascot and develop the perfect workshop for you. It really is amazing, you can make anything.
