Clay Sculputures for Fall

We continued our FALL pumpkins and leaves and fell into clay sculptures.  These are still in the process.  Final photos to be posted later.

Kindergarten and First did coiled pumpkins which we have just started.  They will be painting this week.  We punched a circle close to the stem where we are going to thread green ribbon and pipe cleaners to resemble the leaves and serve as a hanger. 

2nd & 3rd grade did Leaf Art which I spotted on funart4kids blog.  Thank you for the idea!  The first round I baked and they all went flat.  I realized I can bake these in the paper bowls to keep their shape...so we tried again. 

4th made miniature pumpkins (pinch pot technique) with lids.
