The other day Link learned to make pinch pots. I've been trying to get him to be more adventurous and get dirty, but now I'm realizing that it is something we can work on gently or else learning won't be fun for him. Clay was not exciting for Link because of the mess. So I put it in a baggie for him to make. And when that still wasn't capturing his interest I brought out the colored modeling clay and we had much better success. We also let the clay dry in the sun.
Here is a great tutorial on how to make a pinch pot with the added bonus of Link making up a song called "caveman style." Can you guess what tune it was sung too?
And Link added his own activity to his list. A bear hunt with Felix as the bear. This bear we attacked with bear hugs.
