If you have some clay you could have each student roll up about a
dozen or so golf ball size pieces of clay, give them some thin plastic
(like dry cleaner bag) then let them go all over the room stamping the
soft clay (have them put the plastic between the clay and the item they
are stamping). I'll bet they will want a dozen more pieces of clay.
Clay is made to be textureized!
