Kindergarten Clay Turtles

The kindergarten students made these turtles from slabs of clay.  Each student started with a slab about a 1/2 an inch thick.  We rolled them out to be a little less than 1/4 of an inch and got started.  Each student received a paper stencil of a turtle.  Using the pointed end of a wooden skewer we traced the stencil to cut the shapes out.  Using the same tool, we carved faces and designs into our turtles to bring them to life. Once they are fired, we will “glaze” them with acrylic paint.
