Cassie Stephens: Clay Mugs for Kids!

Hello, mates! My pupils are wrapping up just one of the clay projects they created and I imagined I’d share. Last calendar year, my initially via fourth created clay mugs and it was simply everyone’s favored clay challenge. When I shared that we were being functioning with clay again, a handful of months ago, their initially dilemma was “are we earning mugs once again?!” I experienced by now planned on it…so they had been enthusiastic to listen to the reply. The moment mugs are total, we celebrate by ingesting sizzling chocolate out of them…so it really is a complete good deal of pleasurable. 

This calendar year, I established a video to share with them. Due to the fact I have 30 moment art classes, I only confirmed the pinch pot portion and a little bit of coil earning for the first course. The 2nd course, we did a brief coil making reminder and then watched the part about creating a cope with. The video assisted them difficulties shoot and get their mugs accomplished in just two 30 moment lessons!
