Amelia's Pottery


Amelia and Meredith have learned on their own how to make pottery here in Kenya.  
Inside their "bush fort" they mix mud and water together on a piece of lumber.  They form the bowl with their hands and other made up tools to their correct shape.  Then they allow the mud to bake under the sun.  Finally, adding some paint to finish their creation.  One each for Mom & Dad.

How great is this. Yep, take away the tv and video games and what do you get - creative children. Your girls are learning such fun things that will carry through forever. Wouldn't you have loved to have heard the conversation that led them to even try this.

Thanks for sharing.
