In September, we went to Chessell Pottery Barns, which is between Freshwater and Newport. It is a very middle class tourist attraction – basically, you choose a piece of pottery and then glaze it (they have loads of colours) and the staff fire it in the kiln, ready for you to pick it up a few days later. They also have a lovely cafe.
My son pretty much used every colour on his skull but my daughter (with my husband’s help) went for a far more uniform colour scheme for her dragon. Honestly, I would really recommend it for children who are aged four and over (and are sensible) but my daughter (who is two) was probably too young.
I know it’s obvious but don’t put your kids in clothes that are precious. They give you aprons but the children WILL get paint on their sleeves.
