            How about keeping some for yourself in your centers, and giving the rest to
    the lowest grades for their centers. The stuff is not good for art, but can
    help kids develop fine motor skills and hand strength.

    Subject: supplies - what to do?

    I have a dilemma. I have a ton of leftover supplies from the previous
    art teacher (who was asked to leave, I found out today). She was into
    alot of crafty things - sparkles, buttons, beads, etc. Some of the items
    I think I can use for free day projects (after 10 good days I will give
    them stations to work at with games, art supplies, blocks, etc. They
    don't realize that they are learning something. It's just a break from
    the routine). However, I have about 50-60 packages of non-hardening
    clay. I would rather use clay that hardens or needs firing so the
    students have proof of their work. Nothing that can be flattened! What
    am I to do with this amout of clay?? Some could be used for a free day
    but not that much! I could have a mold making project for sculpture, but
    could the younger ones (I will be teaching K-4) do that? Help!!
