Get your whole family's creative juices flowing by visiting a local pottery and crafts studio. Your children will adore squishing clay between their little fingers as they create pinch pots, dishes or keepsake Christmas ornaments. Younger ones may prefer painting premade plaster crafts that come in all kinds of shapes and themes. Make it a day's event by visiting the studio in the morning. Break for lunch while the masterpieces are drying. Then return in the afternoon to apply glazes before they are baked in the kiln. This is one activity that will bring out the child in all of you!
