Great American Baseball Tour — Day 16

Monday, April 30, 2018

clipart alligator relaxingToday is a day of rest following another night game yesterday. Jim seems to be especially tired today so we are just hanging out in our room. This is a pretty strenuous trip for someone recovering from shingles so I am just letting him catch up on his rest so we can go again tomorrow.

I can’t help thinking about something I saw at the park.

Dodger Stadium has apparently caught on to how trendy it is to eat food out of bowls, so new for the 2017 season is a lineup of “Base Bowls” (go on, say it aloud). You can choose between a Hawaiian poke bowl (because there’s apparently not enough poke in LA), a teriyaki chicken bowl, a Vietnamese rice … [this from an article on the web]

I can’t find a picture of it online, and the food was not something of interest so I didn’t buy one, but think how much fun it would be to make our own “Base Bowls”

Idea of the Day

These are some ideas from a search online:
The baseball bowl, a smiling baseball bowl, or even soccer or basketball bowls.

Duncan Bisque has a baseball cup and a baseball bank that we can purchase.
They sell for $7.20 & $7.60.

Duncan Bisque also has these items:
Cereal bowl ($5.80), Jumbo latte/soup mug ($6.00),
Short ice cream dish ($7.10), and a yarn bowl ($12.20)

duncan 0079d plain round ornaments (balls)

Although we have molds in the studio for nearly five dozen mugs and cups, none of the plain ones are the right shape. However, we do have this round ball Christmas ornament ($3.50) that would be nice. (Duncan bisque is $4.60) It could be a plain baseball, or add a smiley face, or a name, or even a team logo. What a nice gift for the sports fans in your family.

So I need some feedback here from our students and others local to the Youngstown area. Is anyone interested? Should we have a Kids Krafts workshop to do this? If six or more are interested I will order the bisque.  (This is not something to order and have shipped as you can purchase them at a local Duncan distributor. If you want us to paint them for you send a pm to the Facebook page.)
