A Kids Pottery Wheel and Air Drying Regular Clay

A Kids Pottery Wheel

This post contains affiliate links.Several months ago, I wrote about Maia’s love affair with a kids pottery wheel.

In case you’re wondering if this is the sort of thing a blogger might write about in the excitement of early use and then abandon, this has definitely not been the case. Both the love affair and the wheel are still going strong.

The kids pottery wheel is one that was sent to me by Craft Project Ideas to try out. You can buy them in Walmart or you can buy them online through Amazon.

Update: We’ve since used and loved a different pottery wheel for kids (by Faber Castell) that works a bit better. You can read my post about it here.

Using A Kids Pottery Wheel to Make Pots

Kids Pottery Wheel 3

Lately Maia has been making a series of small bowls, cups, and other vessels for the family. The clay she is using is regular potters clay that I purchased from Discount School Supply (you get A LOT and it lasts a long time!).

Kids Pottery Wheel 7

She has gotten around the (to her) sad lack of kiln facilities in our house by letting the clay pieces dry completely and then painting over them with acrylic paint. Perhaps their longevity won’t be the same as a kiln-dried piece, but they seem sturdy and Maia is happy.

Kids Pottery Wheel by Craft Project Ideas

Would you like to buy a pottery wheel for your kids? I recommend giving one a try! Especially if your child loves sensory experiences or is interested in making little clay pots and bowls.

Pin It for Later

My daughter, a clay lover, uses her kids pottery wheel regularly and lets her little bowls and cups air dry (no household kiln here) before painting them.

The kids pottery wheel was sent to us for free by Craft Project Ideas, one of my blog sponsors. All opinions expressed are my own.

    Maia’s creations are terrific!
    I had no idea air-dry clay existed until my 7-year-old found a book about polymer clay buildings that I bought on a whim at one of those half-price bookstores once. I’m kind of nervous about polymer clay (it just seems so… toxic), so we went to the craft store looking for an alternative and found the Crayola white air-dry clay on sale. He’s been having a great time with that stuff, and I think he’d love to use it with a wheel. I bought a sealant to use on it before painting, but we haven’t tried it out yet.
    I used to love “centering” clay on a wheel. It’s almost like magic when it’s suddenly centered. :-)

    My son is dying to have a wheel for pottery. We just studied texture and clay with the ancients – Durer…. He made a rabbit, but he really wants the sensory experience of the clay…. As I recoil with the mud mess….. He like your daughter is highly sensory…. My daughters are not….l it would be just the perfect thing for my boy….. My little Renessaince Kiddo….. Love and support that at home with our homeschooling and life! Oh, you should see his studies of Pollack and sensory/tactile/fluidity/movement art. Thanks so much!

    Clay is such a great material. Last summer my daughter wanted to try natural clay, the kind that is inside the ground and it was a totally different experience. Other parents probably thought we were quite strange when we carted bucketfuls of clay home from the beach :) (Idea came from “The Stick Book” by Fiona Danks).

    Pottery wheels are great…for kids and adults. You can make so many things. Sometimes if you are close to a local school and you can meet in the middle with the scheduling…they might let you put your pieces in with theirs so they don’t waste space by just doing a couple pieces at a time. Something to check…

I thought this would be such a fun gift for him one day. More mess, more fun :)

    Ohhhh, this would be awesome! I have four children, am the elementary coordinator for the homeschool group, and teach art lessons on the side…. and yet, we’ve never had a pottery wheel to use! Fingers crossed!!

    My five year old Paige has JUST started getting into pottery (and we have been making little bowls for the treasures she finds outside..) this would make her squeal! Thanks for the chance. Tracy – [email protected]

    What a great product! I would love to win one. I have not used a pottery wheel myself, even though I am an artist. My daughter and I would LOVE using it to create with air dry clay. Thank you for sharing your creative adventures and inspiring us all.

    Oh, I have a little one who would absolutely love this. We went to an art fair last fall and she loved watching some of the artists create with pottery wheels! I think she could have stood and watched them all night!! She would be overjoyed to get to try it herself!

    I might be to late. It is still worth a try! Our children often use their sweet little fingers for hand building with clay. This would be lots of fun for them! Thank you for the facebook giveaway reminder!

    My 7 year old would FLIP over this. We purchased a Discovery Kids brand a while back, but it was total junk so we returned it much to my daughter’s disappointment. I’m happy to see this one has worked well for you and lasted several months.

    Hi,

    I know this is an old post, though my search for kid’s pottery wheel got me here now :) it’s pretty helpful and encouraging!
    I wanted to understand if 3 years is a good time to introduce to a pottery wheel? My little one loves sensory experiences! So far i have tried with colors, play dough, ingredients like, pulses, wheat dough etc. She enjoys it thoroughly. In India i found this one

    any inputs would be helpful!
