Week 3 I taught the little ones (entering K-3) how to make pinch pots for birds' nests and then how to form a bird. All of our projects will be painted next week. This is a good project for learning how to make pinch pots.
First make a pinch pot with a couple of eggs in it.
Next, make a bird from the leftover clay. You can leave the bird unattached, so you are able to take the bird out of the nest or place it inside. After the clay is fired and painted, you can gather small twigs and grasses to place in the nest. These birds were made by lower elementary students.
