Charlie especially loves getting hands into crafting, and one of his favorite places to create is Play With Clay, a pottery studio in Guelph. It tends to be a bit too far out of our rather tight budget these days, but today was their annual open house with great deals (and free cake, too!)
It is always interesting to see how different 2 boys can be, coming from the same parents and the same home. Charlie picked out his piece (a little Halloween decoration), slopped some orange paint on it, went for a piece of cake, and was happy to sit and watch the rest of the action going on around him.
William, on the other hand, spent the better part of an hour carefully working through the different colors that he wanted on his bowl (in multiple coats, of course). That boy is nothing if not meticulous.
Regardless of their different approaches, they both had a great time and can't wait until next week when they can pick up their final products, glazed and fired.
