At the Clayground

We took Jaden to a neat "paint your own pottery stuido" in El Paso called At the Clayground. He got to choose his own ceramic piece to paint, as well as the colors he wanted; then he painted away! He was a little over ambitious for his first time, choosing a good size motorcycle bank, instead of the little turtle that I tried to talk him into. But he loves motorcycles and money, so it really was the perfect choice for him! The lady working commented on how mature he was for his age because she noticed that he did not swirl all of the different colors of paint together on his tile palette like most two-year-olds do. He did do really well, for the most part. His piece was a little big for him, and he required lots of extra painting hands. He also didn't understand why they wouldn't give him crayons to use, along with the paints! But the end result was very cute. I think his favorite part was having his foot painted for a plate that I was making. After we printed his foot on the front of the plate, he asked to do it again, so his footprint is on the front and back. Elijah got his foot painted too and didn't mind it at all! We left our pieces to be glazed and fired and can't wait to see the finished product when we go pick them up!


  1. Such fun times. When you get the piece back can you post a picture of it, I'm anxious to see what it will look like!!!!!!

  2. Wasn't it fun! Couldn't have done it without you! I will post a picture of the finished pieces as soon as I get them. I can't wait to see them either - that motorcycle should be interesting (team effort on that one)! How did yours come out?

  3. that was so much fun!!!! Im so glad we went with you! You have to remind me to bring them the next time I see you!!! The boys were so cute when getting their feet painted!
