Clayworks

This weekend we took the boys to Omaha Clayworks for a class.

Dad did the class to. I said, "I'd love to do the class, but I think I'll need to be a helper more than anything." He didn't tell me about the class very early for me to know what to even make.


I helped Isaak the most. 

He was trying to make a rocket. Of course he didn't quite understand the idea that you have to hallow it out, and not keep it too thick, or too thin in areas. He said a few times, "Mom stop doing it for me." Trust me I wouldn't have made anything like that rocket for myself. I was just trying to make it so that his rocket would fire.

 Here's how it turned out:


Isaak still wanted to add fire to the base. The guy in charge, and I listed off ways he could do that, but in the end I convinced him that adding a different medium for fire might be the answer.

The guy in charge helped Mica a lot. He was trying to make a robot.



Mica decided when the time was up he was adding legs and feet. I'm thinking the legs may fall off when it's fired up, but we'll see.

Here's the finish minus the feet:

I took ceramics in high school and loved it so much. I wish there was something like this around here for my girls. I think they would love crate with clay too! The boys did an amazing job on their projects!
