This week we have had clay available in the art studio. Last week the children went to appointments to learn how to use the clay. They used their whole bodies to mold the clay into inventive things. This week we opened it up at a table for the children to mold with their upper body limbs. The children got into making snakes, worms, and pots out of the clay. They were excited to dig their hands into the clay and make something new.
Summer was happy to begin rolling a snake out with the clay.
She stated "it is going to hiss, and slither, like this" doing the slither dance.
Carson used fine motor skills to make eyes for his face he made out of clay
Many snakes were made to slither in the ground. Some also called them worms. The children remembered the worms from the walk with Mrs. Weller.
