Ceramics

An excellent way to introduce different materials to preschoolers is through a ceramics activity. The clay can be used in so many different ways, and the children get to see how they are transformed from pliable clay into rigid pieces of art (a sculpted piece of clay). When the children finish their creation, they have a product that they can hold in their hands and not just on a screen or paper. This type of activity is also enjoyable because it becomes an experience. Allowing the children to explore textures, forms, colors, and other senses while creating gives them an entire sensory experience with art.
