Making clay pots
Liam discovered some clay the other day when we were out doing our gardening - ah yes awful clay soil, the nasty stuff that get's stuck to your gumboots in winter and turns hard as rock in summer, the stuff that veges won't grow in. I'm on a continual quest to get rid of it. But Liam, he loves it, he thinks it's just wonderful. He found a good patch of particularly sticky gluggy stuff that he spent all afternoon shaping into pots, and other such assortments of things.
And then very patiently waited for two days, checking often, to see if they were dry. And then Isla and him spent ages painting them all. Great fun!
