Third Grade Coil Pots

My third grade artists always learn coil pot building for their clay project.  This year I switched it up a bit, and the coil pots became bird nests.  We squeezed “twigs” through garlic presses to finish the tops of our pots – this was a big hit with my third graders!

Of course, what’s a nest without a bird and some eggs?  So we created some sweet little birds from Model Magic to live in our nests.

  We colored the model magic by dabbing it with blue markers, then mixing it until we got just the right shade of blue.
