Anthony: We're playing with clay. It's lots of fun playing with clay. It feels great. You can squish it in your hand. You can roll it. You can make things with clay. What have you made, Sofia?
Sofia: A cat.
Anthony: You made a cat? Wow. What about you, Anthony? What do you make?
kid Anthony: I'm gonna make a big rock that's only solid.
Anthony: A big rock that's only solid. That's great? What about you, Clare?
