Mister Maker Under the Seapaper Clay Modelling Review.

I was asked to review the Mister maker Modelling kit. Anyone who watches Cbeebies must of heard of this chap. Basically he is a really happy sort that creates art in his room from the things around him. No  limits to his imagination, now working in education I found this a useful resource to give me ideas to make items for my class. There are lots of fun items on the website that hardly cost any money which is a bonus in this day and age, such as a bubble wrap cactus.

So to the item in hand....

Basically the kit comes with everything you need Modelling clay ,brush. paint, glue, googly eyes (my favourite) and various other little bits to turn the items into fridge magnets, badges key rings.

This probably most suitable for the ages of between 4 and 10 with adult supervision of course. I found the modelling clay easy to mould and shape. the instructions were fairly clear. The more complicated shapes would takes a bit of practice ,but this is OK as the modelling clay does not dry out too quick.

My only criticism and its a teeny weeny one is the quality of the paints and brush . I must admit for the shark I used my own paint . This aside I believe this to be a fun kit that children would enjoy and very useful for their fine motor skills.

Here is my shark....

I hope you like her .... her name why its Mummybarrow for her sharp grasp of the reality of life. x

And here is my Octopus.....

I made two of the models there is enough clay left to make another four models. It is an ideal classroom or home activity set.

I do have names for the shark and Octopus and have tweeted their namesakes. 


  1. Great shark!!!
    And thanks for the review, very cheap product indeed, will buy it for some birthdays.

  2. Wow, that looks a lot of fun for kids, when the sun's not shining in the holidays. Good fun for adults too at a reasonable price. Loving the octopus! ;-)

  3. My kids love Mr Maker! Looks like a great kit. x
