Stamped Ceramic Bowls
Kids smushed clay into Styrofoam bowls.
Kids stamped clay with rubber stamps. (I had a request for a horse stamp. I did not have one. So heads up for all you teachers with horse lovers. Get a horse stamp!)
We let the bowls sit for a week.
We fired the bowls.
Kids glazed fired bowls.
(Notice how I covered JJ's bottom with construction paper? I covered all the bowls with construction paper because first graders would have glazed the bottom. If I had a stilt warehouse close to the school campus, I would let the kids glaze the bottom.)
Then, we Fired it UP, one last time. When I fire up the kiln, I always yell "Fire it Up" and think of this song by Modest Mouse:
Easy beginning clay project for first graders.
