DLTK's Bible Crafts for Kids

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

Jacob shared his stew with Esau in exchange for Esau's birthright.  Make this fun, simple bowl with the children while reading Genesis 25.
 

Materials:

Instructions:

Choose and prepare one of the clay recipes (or use store bought clay such as Sculpey clay).  All of the recipes work fine and depend on the ingredients you have on hand.  I prefer the last version

Form the clay into a bowl using one of two methods (option 1 is easier than option 2):

Option 1:  Pinch Pot method

  • Roll the clay into a ball.
     
  • Stick thumbs into the center of the ball, pinching the sides to make a hollow (you're making a bowl shape, not a donut)
       
  • Flatten out the bottom of the ball to make a nice flat surface for the bowl (so it will sit sturdily on a table without risk of it falling).
     
  • Let air dry or bake dry depending on the type of clay you are using.
     
  • Use acrylic paint to decorate the pot however you like or leave it natural
     
  • Let dry

Option 2:  Coil Pot method

  • Make a flat "pancake" of clay.  This will be the bottom of your bowl.
     
  • Roll remaining clay into long snakes.
     
  • Coil the snakes around the pancake of clay, building up the pot as you go.  .
     
  • You'll need to squeeze the snakes onto the pancake and onto each other a bit so they stay together when the project dries
  • Let air dry or bake dry depending on the type of clay you are using.
     
  • Use acrylic paint to decorate the bowl however you like or leave it natural
       
  • Let dry
