Figure 1.  Mixing the cob

 

  Making cob might be a lot of work, but that doesn't mean it can't be fun!  Sometimes cobbing by yourself can be relaxing- just you and squishy mud between you toes and listening to the birds chirp can be very soothing.  It can help clear your mind, or help lead you into deep thought.  Cobbing with others is also fun; joking around with friends with upbeat music playing in the background and getting a little dirty is a great way to spend part of your day.  Either way, you might want to bring snacks and water so you can give yourself a break once in a while to sit back and admire your work.   Another good idea is to place a small time capsule into the cob- nothing too big since you donít want to weaken the structure- but a little something you can leave in the cob as a memento can make it all that more exciting!
