Primary aged students, and even my pre-K students love making clay pumpkins in October. Their parents and my principal always comment on how cute they are too. This assignment is quick and easy. First we made a practice pumpkin using oil clay.
The next time the kids came to art class they made a "real" clay pumpkin. The kids looked at some real clay pumpkins from the garden. We made the ridges using wooden clay tool knives and our fingers. Popsicle sticks work great too.
I let them dry for a couple of days before firing them. The next art class the kids glazed them.
