Throw something

Dig up some wild clay. Philly’s built on a giant clay bed, didja know? (It’s what bricks are made of.) Walk along a creek or river and look for smooth gray patches on the banks or underwater. When you find a likely spot, attack with your fingers or a trowel; if you’re lucky, you’ll strike clay. Dig some out (don’t be a pig), keep it moist in a plastic bag, take it home, sculpt your little heart out, let the results dry, then paint with poster paint. Cost: $.
