Mini classes had a chance to play around with clay. I find children always skeptic about it at first, not knowing what to do and not wanting to damage anything they’ve made but as they get familiar with it, realizing they can fix just about anything that seems they’ve messed up, it becomes such fun. It’s why I always think the classes should be repeated few times. Maybe not the projects but the materials and techniques.
Anyways, we’ve read a book at this class, The tiger who came to tea and children and their mums were invited to make tigers, saucepan and dishes, tiger food and also whatever children could think of. They are small, they should be able to just have an open clay play factory.
It was fun and lately they’ve been eager to get their sculptures back from that long firing. Sorry guys, here they come!
