Children's intuitive and existential intelligence is enhanced by this creative project when learning about and consciously working with symbols and their importance to people. In addition, the skills involved in creating a mould will stimulate their intuition and feel for how the moulded item will look like when removed from the mould.
Guide step 1
Step 1.
The mould: Roll out a max. 2 cm thick piece of self-hardening clay to a suitable size for the design. Then draw a design on a lino block and cut it out.
Guide step 2
Step 2.
Push a cut-out shape (max. 0.5 cm thick) into the clay. Alternatively you may carve a design directly into the clay.
Guide step 3
Step 3.
Make a small hole for hanging at the top of the shape. You may use a flower stick, pushing it into the clay. Let the mould dry for three or four days on a wire rack.
Guide step 4
Step 4.
NB: wear safety glasses. Melt the pewter in a pewter casting ladle directly on a hotplate at high temperature. Keep an eye.
Guide step 5
Step 5.
NB: wear safety glasses. Pour the molten pewter in the clay mould and leave to set.
Guide step 6
Step 6.
File away any rough edges.
Guide step 7
Step 7.
Attach the finished pendant to a piece of leather cord with an adjustable knot which is made as follows: Place one end of the cord first underneath the other end of the cord – and then over.
Guide step 8
Step 8.
Now feed one end underneath the “cross” and up, before feeding it into the loop from where it is pulled tight like a knot.
Guide step 9
Step 9.
Turn the bracelet/necklace so it is mirror-imaged and make an equivalent adjustable knot in the last of the two ends. Trim the ends, close to the knots.
Guide step 10
Intuition-wise
Intuitive intelligence. Enhanced by activities in which children must use their abilities to sense what (perhaps) will happen, and by mind reading and thinking synchronously.
Guide step 11
Life-wise
Existential intelligence. Enhanced by activities in which children must use their abilities to recognise that life and existence are different for each individual child.
