I don't pug my mixed scrap clay ,but give it out when people come into my
\studio with kids..It pleases me to think of the pleasure that kids get
when they get something for free unexpectedly amd the by product of good
will from the customers is real...I always
telll the kids that the only rule is that they have to check with the
parents as to where they can use it...Elca Branman

Dear teachers
I know this thread has been here before but I now have a chance to involve
myself with 4th and 5th graders. Does anyone know what projects are good
for this age group? Can they throw with an electric wheel? What keeps
their interest?
