How to Make Clay Bowls and Dishes

If you love sculpting with clay….. then I have a fun craft for you.  Today I’m going to show you how to make Bowls and Dishes made out of Clay.  You will need some adult supervision for this craft as the clay will need to be baked once you have finished forming your Bowls and Dishes.  Simply bake the clay according to the clay’s instructions.  Are you ready to get started?  Simply grab some clay and we will move on with the craft.
