Today my class had the delight of a field trip to Philbrook Art Museum. We viewed Native American art and pottery and then went to a studio where we created Model Magic pinch pots. This is such a simple way to introduce making a pinch pot if you do not have access to a kiln and real clay! I loved it!
We viewed Native American pottery.
Back in the museum studio, each child was given white Model Magic. I like to buy it at Michael's with a 40% off coupon.
Step One: Roll the clay into a ball.
Step Two: Put a hole in the middle of the ball and pinch it out.
Step Three: Pinch until a pot emerges! Let it dry.
Step Four: Decorate with markers.
Optional Step Five: Adult can spray a clear coat on pots.
I just love your ideas!!! I am a retired kindergarten teacher sure makes me miss doing those fun yet so appropriate activities. Please keep sharing!
