mud pies & tea


We had THREE snow days last week and planned on going skiing up north for the other two, so my girls had a FULL week off of school, crazy.  With school cancelled, we had to make up our craft club as the roads were too treacherous even for clay!  I debated like crazy about splitting the group in two for this one, since the lesson was a bit more hands on,  it ended up happening naturally as a few were missing due to sickness.   It was sweet to work with a small group (six) and get to help the girls a bit more individually.  I’ll have to schedule a make-up for the make-up…DSC_0866

This month we made clay tea cups from coil pots and some fashionable clay beads.  This really counts as two different 4-H crafts, since clay is one category and jewelry is another.  I figured I would teach the a little early multi-tasking!  My hands were too messy to snap photos during the process but they turned out great. Can’t wait to see after they are glazed and fired.


I have enjoyed watching my girls grown in friendships with other girls from their class and school.  How fun to make art and invite these cuties in our home once a month. DSC_0862
