Baker's Clay

Today has been one of those days where the perks of homeschooling show! Cami recently began the unit on Physical Science. Today's lesson was on clay and in my teacher's manual there was a recipe for baker's clay and the instructions on how to bake it. I didn't take any pictures when we formed them, before we baked them. I did however get pictures of painting!
They made "pinch pots" and then were able to make shapes with cookie cutters with the extra clay. We used a straw to poke a hole in them before baking so that we could tie a ribbon through to make an ornament.
I'm pretty sure you don't get to make Darth Vader and Yoda out of clay in regular science class. ;)
