Pottery fun

Both my kids love to be creative (can you see the big smile on my face). Makayla got this Pottery wheel set for Christmas.

This Pottery wheel is battery operated and we bought it at CNA. With the set you get paint, a brush, a special plastic knife and 2 packets of potters clay.

In the picture above you can see what the box look like. If you look really close you can see the hippo's head Makayla made (it is on her finger). You can also see a first attempt at making a pot. Kids can be so creative.

Matthew will obviously not sit and watch while his sister has all the fun. He uses only a few fingers to create a small little pot. He is concentrating very hard that is why mom only got half a smile for the picture.

We hope to develop this new talent. We will use this pottery wheel in our ventures in learning about various countries and making some great artifacts.

A word of caution: This is a very messy business, ensure you cover your table with plastic and you have a bowl of water close by to wet your hands and clay to be able to form the pots.

Now over to you, come and showcase what your kids do and make.
