This means that it will forever look just like the day he brought it home. Never tarnished with ashes. In a few months he will be bragging to his friends about it.

To which I hope you said, "Thank you very much, it's lovely." And then used it for a candy dish. Don't break the little buggers heart because you finally gave up a bad habit.

You could hang it on the wall. Just because your son made it as an ashtray doesn't mean you have to use it as an ashtray. I use my T-shirt as a napkin. Same principle.

I think OP is saying she is quitting because she smokes so much her son decided to make her an ash tray instead of a jewelry box or something cute.

That's what the kids used to do at my elementary school used to do! They would make ash trays for their parents! Thats before we knew about the harms of smoking. Now they make other things.

It may just be me, but I find it odd that children are making ashtrays in arts and crafts! Are they going to hand out cigarettes next?

That's a bit irrelevant and extreme..I'm pretty sure the teacher didn't instruct him to make the ashtray. It doesn't seem strange to me at all, the kid wanted to make his parent a useful present. Very thoughtful kid.

Your comment is interesting. Never really thought about it. In High School I made 4 ashtrays (even though no one in my family smokes). It was just an easy grade. Two of my vases blew up so I stuck with smaller projects. (:

It isn't that peculiar to make an ashtray in school... In high school some kids tried getting away with making bongs in ceramics

If the 'kid' is old enough to make an ashtray, it's no longer 'arts and crafts'. That's little kid sh*t lol. It's just art class.

I made an ashtray in seventh grade, even though nobody in my family smokes. It's pretty much the easiest thing to start with.

10 - you sound like an overprotective parent who always wants to shelter her children. Ashtrays are a simple clay sculpture that can even be done in elementary schools because it can be used as a bowl or a candy dish too. Its neutral in nature. They're not condoning smoking, but not condemning it either.
