working with clay
The kids love clay, and don't get much chance to work with it. This is air dry clay, so the pieces will be dry by next week, and then they'll paint them.
I showed them how to make a pinch pot and a coil pot~ and talk a bit about where clay comes from and how the Native Americans created dishes and bowls.
As usual, Victor created a dinosaur. He's quite the expert on them!
After they made the bowls, to learn the techniques, they created rabbits and cats, and furniture!
One group of girls constructed a whole set of bedroom furniture including a giant lava lamp!
