Clayground Wizards

This week at the glazedOver Clayground, the kids and I made wizards out of clay. There were many steps to the process, but it wasn’t very difficult. We made them from various sizes of slab triangles: one for the cloak, two for the sleeves, one for the beard and another for the wizard hat. Then all we needed to do was add the details: the hands, the moustache, the eyes and eyebrows. Some kids even added wizard props like a magic wand, a staff and a magic ball. We were all able to finish them in just one class. It was great fun and they came out looking like magic could happen any minute!
