We try to cram as much as possible into 6 days. We usually have a list of things for each day and this year Pottery was on the list.
This is Tyler my brother's oldest...the best 16 year old boy on planet earth!!! Man, I can't tell you how much I love and miss my brother's kids! Eli was LOVIN him. He kept calling him TIRE...so cute!
All the kids picked their own piece to paint and then they let you pick out the colors.
Of course I had to help my lil' man. Otherwise, he would have painted the little girl to the right (Emily).
I did the classic, predictable, hand print on the plate...I know, I couldn't help it! I must say I set myself up for disappointment if I break it. But, Eli did do some art of his own on it as well.
I tried, Oh so hard to get Dee to do one on hers, but that was not going to happen. So, then it made me feel glad that I at least got one out of her brother.
The older kids REALLY got into this. After I left with my crew they stayed for another hour to finish painting theirs!
Then we topped it off with a cookie :D
I would say to anyone who has not done this before... it was a lot of fun and something that will last a long time (hopefully). They had to stay there to be "cooked", we pick them up today...can't wait!
