My grandkids are going to be coming to the studio off and on over the summer starting next week, and I'm looking for projects they might like. I've searched online and found some cute ideas, but thought I might throw it out there and see if anybody has different, fun suggestions.
They are ages 4 (boy), 6 (girl), 10 (girl) and 12 (boy). I thought I'd let the oldest two try the wheel, plus some slab projects and a pinch pot. Probably slab stuff for the youngest two.
I'm not really good with kids, and have never done classes or anything like that, so I'm a little scared. We have been estranged for 5 years and just reconnected two weeks ago, so I hoped this would be a good way to get to know them again. They will be coming to the studio one at a time, so I don't have to do the same things with all of them. I know the little guy has a short attention span. The oldest boy is obsessed with technology, so he may not be interested in such a low-tech thing as clay.
Some of the ideas I had were:
Any other suggestions will be much appreciated. Or places to look online.
