Clay-caked fingernails. Paint-splattered clothes.
Beyond-messy tables and floors.
Who's ready to make some pottery?
Sculpting, kneading and painting clay to form a
masterpiece sounds like a dream come true to most kids (at least to
my art-obsessed children). The mess that ensues, however, probably
is not something most moms fantasize about. Most days our kitchen
table resembles some type of craft show gone wrong. I love arts and
crafts and so do my kids, but I'm not exactly crazy about pottery
painting at home.
Luckily, there are a slew of paint-your-own pottery
joints. My kids-Julie, 7, and Johnny, 3-and I got our hands dirty
(literally) and scoped out the best spots to paint your own
