Here is a quick and simple way to make non toxic air dry clay with your kids. Here’s what you will need:
Food Coloring (optional)
First get a sauce pan and fill it with 1 cup of cornstarch
Next, add 1 1/4 cup of baking soda
Then add 2 cups of water
Turn the oven on to low heat and start stirring the mixture. You will have to keep stirring the mixture until it starts to thickens. It will take anywhere from 5 to 10 mins. You can add food coloring while you are stirring to color your clay or you can leave it to be colored later with acrylic paint by your kids. When the mixture starts to thicken you can wait till it starts to look like slightly done mashed potatoes and then you can remove it from the fire. You may want to keep stirring if you would like for the consistency to be very thick.
You can make all sorts of awesome projects with your clay and it’s non toxic. You can make Christmas ornaments, earrings, necklaces, picture frames, flowers, and much much!. Great for any art project and air dries your kids will love making clay with you and you can be at ease knowing it’s safe and free of toxins 🙂
