You don't have to be an expert at pottery to make something special with this clay curiosity kit. Making the clay is easy—all you do is add water. Kids get a great sensory experience as they knead it themselves, just like playing with mud! You can make your creations as complicated as you want, from a simple Christmas ornament to a more challenging decorative pitcher, meaning crafters of all skill levels are sure to have fun. And since the clay dries on its own, kids can do most of the work by themselves. Let the fun begin! (Curiosity Kits, $9.99)
