Our local bookstore offers a children’s activity on the second Saturday of every month (save for when they were remodeling). This week, a local artist shared a bunch of clay with the kids and allowed them to create whatever they wanted. She spoke a little about where the clay came from and its properties. She gave them a couple of pointers on different ways to manipulate the clay. Other than that, though, the kids’ imaginations took over.


Here’s Bubba shaping a gift for a sick friend.


Baby had a harder time smooshing the clay, so she opted for pounding and squashing it. She also hoarded many many pieces.


Mimi’s favorite creation was the snake.


The two oldest working together.


Baby’s favorite part was the washing bucket. In fact, after she found it, she didn’t want to go back to the clay. I had to drag her away from it at the end.
