Don't be afraid to get your hands a little dirty. Take the kids to Penguin Foot Pottery in Logan Square and they can make their own holiday gifts for the family. Families were lined-up at the fair to take their turn at the pottery wheels and had a lot of fun spinning some clay.
Penguin Foot offers a variety of classes, including walk-in classes just for kids and parent/child classes.
