Pumpkin Clay Rattles

These are such a cute idea! Have you ever made rattles in art class? If not, all ya need to know is how to make 2 pinch pots.....mend them together. Place several small clay ball inside of the rattle before you mend. The larger the balls the more dull the sound will be. If you want a high pitch sound then you should make smaller balls.

Google how to make clay rattles and tons of information comes up for you to research and share with the kids making the project. Be sure to poke a small hole in the bottom as this will help in the firing as doing this will hopefully secure that the rattles will not blow up.

I'll do another post soon of other themes my students chose to make. I thought this would be a good quick post as we are almost to December and moving away from Fall ideas into Winter ideas in my classroom.

Hope you all have a wonderful cyber Monday =)
