Ooooh, I love dilemmas like this! Don't feel like you have to use it all
this year. I don't have any problems with having leftover stuff at the end
of the year. I would use this for centers. Don't let them take the stuff
they make, just let them sculpt with it. They will be learning, doing
"hands on" experimenting, and at the end of class they can smash it and put
it back in the tub. By the end of the year it'll be ready to be pitched -
it'll get dirty.
