Kindergarten Snowflake Dishes

A quick post to get back into the swing of things after a much needed winter break. I love these little dishes my Kindergartners just finished!

Before diving into the making, we spent some time talking about clay and where it comes from and how it's different than Play-Doh :) Then each student formed a pancake from a ball of clay before pressing small plastic snowflake charms into the surface to create texture. The last step was to lay it over the bottom of a Styrofoam bowl in order for the clay to take on the form of a shallow dish.

After the pieces were fired, students used metallic gold paint to make them glow! I loved hearing one Kindergartner say that he would be using his dish to collect treasures.
