10 Fun Air Dry Clay Kits for Adults

Pottery At-home Kits – Clay Craft Kits to Try

Do you want to try a new hobby? Pottery is trending in the craft world! Air dry clay is such a versatile material, you can create tons of fun projects and pottery at home with it, and you don’t need special equipment like a kiln.

I love to work with air drying clay. It’s easy to shape and personalize with paint. I’ve made several fun projects with both store-bought and homemade clay.

If you haven’t tried crafting with air hardening clay, you should definitely try it!

To make things easier I’ve collected a few cool air dry clay kits for adults that may interest you.

Why a kit is better than buying a pack of clay in the craft store? You’ll also get the tools needed. Most kits come with instructions, tutorials and best practices. It allows you to try it and if you like it, you can buy a large pack of clay afterwards.

Also, craft kits are perfect gifts for loved ones. As you will see, I’ve featured several kits that are made for two. They are perfect to spend quality time with family, friends, your spouse, or your child.

Let’s get started!
