How to get Clay Blocks in Minecraft

Making clay is fun!

If you want to make Clay Blocks in the hit game Minecraft, you will need to gather Clay. Clay is a very useful resource that is required in the crafting of Clay Blocks. Luckily you can gather Clay near various water sources in the game. The best water sources to look for Clay are both rivers and lakes. You can also find Clay naturally in oceans and beaches. Once you find Clay, you can get it by breaking the block with a tool.

But if you want to get the entire Clay Block without breaking it, you will need to get the Silk Touch Enchantment in Minecraft. If you don't have the Silk Touch Enchantment, don't worry, as it is not required to get Clay, just to get the Clay Block without breaking it. Breaking Clay blocks will get you Clay Balls instead. Luckily you can use these Clay Balls to make Clay Blocks via a crafting table.
