Kid Crafts - Pinch Pots
We spent many hours inside over the past few months of snow, 40 below windchills and colds/flu. One of the favorite things to do is dig around in clay and make pinch pots. The 2 year old still just pokes chop sticks into blobs and throws it around, but the 4 year old has been changing his approach. At first, all he wanted to do was get some big construction machine with the best tires and run the wheels through the clay over and over. Well, he finally had a day with more interest and focus on creating an actual shape! We managed to do one set of pinch pots together, with mine a little curvy, and his as a big flower container. Our next step is painting them!
