American Girl Monopoly Pieces

This is a guest post and I am really excited to have this craft featured here!  A few weeks ago we made Monopoly game printables for your dolls, and I just went the easy route using jewelry charms for the game pieces.  However, young reader Miryiah made her very own from scratch!  She is very creative and the detail put into these pieces are too amazing not share with all of you! Take a look at her finished game pieces and she even described how she made each game piece below.  Please leave her a comment below!!

Materials Needed:

  1. Gray Sculpey Clay
  2. Silver Nail Polish
  3. Toothpick
  4. Pen & Pen Cap
  5. Plastic Knife
  6. Oven *to bake the clay*

We used a toothpick to texture the dog and make the thimble dots. We just molded the pieces by hand into shapes.

Top Hat- Roll clay into a ball and shape it to form a cylinder shape. Bottom- roll another ball and flatten it. Attach it to the bottom of the cylinder. Fold the edges up.

Dog- Cylinder body with smaller cylinder shapes for the legs. Ears are small triangles. .

Car-Another cylinder shape. Roll out balls for wheels and flatten them. Use the pen cap to make the indention in the car.

Boat- The boat is a cylinder shape and we simply pinched the ends to make them triangular with a smaller cylinder shaped smoke stack, a triangle for the front shape. Another piece of clay rolled out like a snake and cut, then attached to make the cannon on the front of the ship.

Shoe- Cylinder shape, we used a pen top to make the indention in the center. Used a toothpick to create the holes for shoe laces. The back piece us a piece of clay rolled into a small ball, flattened and cut in half.

Thimble- Cylinder shape. We flattened the top by hand to form the shape. Rolled out another piece like a snake wrapped it around the bottom and cut the excess. We used the toothpick to makes the dots all over it.

Iron- Roll a clay ball, flatten it, cut with knife to form triangle. Roll a piece of clay like a snake, cut and lightly attach to iron.

Wheelbarrow- Roll out tiny piece of clay into a ball for front wheel and flatten. Bottom is a triangle. Sides are rectangles with the sides cut at an angle. The back is a piece rolled like a snake and stretched. Handles are formed the same way.

We baked them all according to the clay package directions. When they dried we used silver nail polish to paint them.
