Drawing from the joy we experienced making jewelry with wire, we decided to try our hand at making clay beads! Later in the week, we hope to glaze and fire our beads.
To begin the bead-making process, the children could either cut out shapes from a slab or roll out their beads. Scroll through this slideshow to see who employed each strategy.
We can't wait for all the other children to try this tomorrow!
In the rest of the classroom, construction took over. Check out the children's massive structure that stretched nearly from one end of the classroom to the other!
Outside, we discovered that several of the children have secret mermaid identities... We'll have to see what other new discoveries camp brings us tomorrow!
