Prepping Clay - Oh Yeah!

This morning I was looking forward to the clay projects but ...yes.....really...I planned them back to back! How?!? What happened? Oh...well it happened. Okay, I wanted to prep for both I started cutting and cutting but I needed to separate them for ease of passing them out ...here's what I came up with

lovely I should do this! I usually cut with the kids right in the room! They pass it out pretty quickly. But still this would be better if i had the time.

What a great idea!

Does the cardboard plate pull out too much moisture from the clay?

It's usually cut during planning time and then passed out about 2 hours later....some stuck together but not many

I usually cut it and put it in individual plastic bags for each student. Then when they are working on a piece and haven't finished they already have the bag to cover their clay at the end of the class. Saves time and if you are feeling really frisky you can toss the clay to the kids!

I use wax paper to separate slabs.

I pre-cut slabs with a strip of plastic garbage bag accordian-folded between them. Works well when you have little time during and/or between classes.
