Pinch Pot Ladybugs

So I am pretty sure I got this idea off a blog, but that was months ago. So if its yours just let me know and I will cite you. I finished clay texture necklaces with Kindergarten just the other week and today I taught pinch pots to 1st grade! We learned about pinch pots while we created them. We talked about scoring the clay before they can attach a head. We pinched out antennas on our lady bug's head. Then we add texture for the spots (marker cap) and face (wooden stylus). They were so cute...can't wait to get them fired and glazed.
