I project which worked successfully with me and might be interesting for
older children is to make "a porcelain miniature" or special "porcelain
treasure". Try adding some sand or molochite into the porcelain. That
material will open up the clay body and make it stand up a little bit better.
As for recycling porcelain- it is a pain to recycle because it gets hard
and lumpy. You really need to turn into a complete slurry to recycle it
