The boys found clay out in one of the paddocks this week. Actually it’s been there for a year or so, ever since our landlord drilled a new well for irrigation. Yesterday they brought some over to the house and started molding things from it, and they really got creative today. Simon wrote his story for our homeschool writing group meeting Tuesday, tonight, about making a clay cup. Here are just a few pictures of their creativity. It has kept them occupied for literally hours! They end up a mess, but it washes out.

A pot with three feet. He made a lid for it next!
