Clay Burger Update

Well I've definitely found a keeper! I love this project and the kids do too! We based the project on Pop Art and the way famous pop artist took and everyday object and made it into art. I fired the burgers with the toothpick inside to hold them together, then the students painted the layers and used Mod Podge to glaze and help hold the burger together. Some students got a new toothpick and put it back through, especially if they had an olive on top. I am very pleased with this project! Nice work 4th Graders!!!


  1. Love these! Very Claus Oldenburg. Thanks for sharing the toothpick idea!

  2. Love these so much!!!

  3. Did you hollow out the center??? If you could please e-mail me at and let me know how you made these that would be awesome, I have a couple of questions for you. I was thinking of doing something very similar with my 4/5 Graders.
    These look so awesome, your students should be really proud of themselves!
