Materials

Directions

  1. Have your child paint a terra cotta pot using one of the following techniques:
  2. Paint the outside of the pot one color; paint the rim and inside a different color.
  3. Paint the pot one color inside and out. When the paint is dry, use sponges to dab on two or three other colors.
