Kindergarten Pinch Pots

The kindergarten children had a wonderful time making pinch pots from Model Magic clay. First we played with the clay and practiced making spheres in three different sizes. Then we rolled our clay into one large sphere and each child formed their own creation. We added texture and design to our pots with wooden sticks and forks. The following week we painted our pots using fluorescent paint. After we had cleaned up the room we had a special surprise. We turned off the lights and looked at our pots with a black light. All of the children were amazed and thrilled to see their pots magically glow in the special light. The special effect of the light also allowed the children to see things that could not be seen in normal lighting! We also discovered stray paint on fingers, faces and clothing!
