I've uploaded pics of two clay tools I use with my elementary
students. The links are below.
One tool is our version of a pin tool made with a popsicle stick and a
paper clip. For little kids I prefer the paper clip version of this
pin tool over the ones you can buy commercially because they are not
The other tool is a loop tool I made by drilling a hole in a dowel and
using epoxy to hold a small loop of wire in place at the end of it.
The reason I painted the loop tools bright green is so that they
really pop-out visually when they end up on the floor (which is where
many of the tools spend a good portion of their time until we clean-up).
