Making a Coil Pot
According to archaeologists, Native Americans were making ceramic coil pots over 1,000 years ago. The technique is still a winner today, because it’s easy to roll out the coils and make beautiful, sturdy bowls and vases. Plus, it gives little fingers a fine-motor workout, which will help with writing skills later on.
