Given that @1L2P said "This week's activity is tinker with something you haven't tried before", I had to exclude my trash toys, (like ScaraBots), Scracth projects & Makey Makey.
So I asked my friend @raffaella to give me a block of clay (a fine quality clay from Tuscany) for doing something new.
What Can I do now, I said to myself? Why not a Scratch cat?
This is the first step. Now the cat needs to be fired to become a terracotta (@raffaella is going to do that) and then I will paint it with colors.
Playing with clay has been a great discovery for me, not only a funny experience. While you knead you really feel you are creating something, because the matter is shaped by your hands, and you are free to create forms depending on how your creativity moves your hands.
Create things with hands and mind will give you the best satisfactions of your life; and it's a great learning experience, also because the failing is an important part of the creating process.
