Animal Crossing New Horizons Clay Recipes List

First of all, we will take a look at how to obtain clay in this game. The tools you need would be an axe or a shovel. You can use either of these tools to strike rocks and get clay. There are rocks present on your island as well as other mystery Islands.

You can hit them and gather as much clay as you need but don’t break the rocks because if you do, you will get only one thing in return which would be either an iron nugget, clay or stone and it is very inefficient.

But rocks will respawn after every day, so if you are thinking speeding up time then go for it. If you run out of rocks on your island, travel to another one with 2000 Nook Miles and hit the rocks there. The islands that are empty have a larger number of rocks.
