Clay Teddy Bear Ornaments

These adorable ornaments were made by first graders.  The head, ears, and tummy were formed by rolling little balls of clay, then gently flattening each piece.  The arms and legs were formed by rolling short, chubby coils.  Parts were blended together on the back.  Before firing, I poked a hole in the head with a small straw.  After being fired, pink paint was dabbed on with a q tip, then details were drawn with a Sharpie.  Glitter glaze was brushed on to seal the piece.  A cozy scarf was tied on last.
