With its AC-powered wheel, innovative features and loads of pottery-making accessories, this STEAM kit is designed to introduce kids to pottery making while eliminating frustration and setting them up for success from the start. This set includes everything kids and beginners need to start creating.
To make pottery even more fun, the wheel’s design includes an integrated arm tool with three attachments to open, center and shape clay into art. No baking or firing is necessary, and once dry, kids can use the included sculpting tools, paints, palette and brush to add more artistic flair to their creations!
Detailed, kid-friendly instructions are also included, along with links to step-by-step video lessons that guide kids through the process of pottery making. National Geographic also includes an illustrated Learning Guide that teaches kids about clay, the physics of making pottery, and how cultures from around the world have used both throughout the ages.

What our experts think
The children simply fell in love with this STEAM Pottery Wheel for Kids! The children loved every part of it – from learning to use the device and tools to creating a pottery item on their own. They particularly found interacting with the clay and creating a recognisable object extremely satisfying. On several instances, an entire family became engaged in the process. Children were generally reluctant to stop creating with the pottery wheel!
The QR code that comes with the product provides easy-to-follow guides and videos. The children can follow the instructions alright and they need some assistance from adults to remove the centering, opening, and shaping tool
through each stage.
