"Slab Box"

Clay is a fun material children of any age can enjoy using. Using rolled slabs of clay, young artists create a slab box. First they design their box, then they roll slabs, score, slip, and construct a box that matches their design plan. You can add to the instructional activity by encouraging them to use texture, pattern, and even three-dimensional decorations to their simple creations.
