To make an alien we will need a medium sized ball of Green - Kiddy Clay (take half the clay from the packet). Orange and Red - Kiddy Clay to make the nose and the mouth. Black and White – Kiddy Clay to make the eyes. We will use pipe cleaners to make the hands and the legs of the aliens. (Take all the clay in the sizes shown in the picture in proportions to each other).
To make the body of the alien, first roll the green coloured clay into a round ball. Further roll it into the shape of a cylinder. Dab the cylinder to form four sides and the top and the bottom to form a rectangular shape.
Similarly, to make the conical body, first roll the clay into a round ball, then into a cylinder and then finally a conical shape.
To make the legs of the alien, twist two pipe cleaners together.
Fold the twisted pipe cleaner into half and form the round loops on either ends of the pipe cleaners.
Bend the loops in a right angle to make them stand as two legs.
To make the hands, take one pipe cleaner and make a loop on one side. Leave the other end open to insert it in the body of the alien and then make the loop for the other hand.
Insert the legs and the hands in the conical body of the alien. Place the eyes made out of White and Black – Kiddy Clay on the conical body towards the narrow end.Use Orange Kiddy Clay for the nose and stick it in between the eyes and make two holes with the help of a pencil for the nostrils. The smile is made by rolling the Red – Kiddy Clay in a small conical shape.
Similarly, make another alien using a cuboid body with one eye and a smiley face.
