Modeling Clay to Play and on a table Lay and to have a fun Day.

Modeling Clay

(Makes 1 1/2 cups)

– 1 Cup Baking Soda

-1/2 Cup Cornstarch

-3/4 Cup Water

-Food coloring

In a medium sauce pan over low head combine all ingredients except for food coloring. Heat for 5-10 minutes, stirring frequenting until it thickens. You need to stir constantly toward the end of that time when it begins to thicken. It will look like mashed potatoes. Spread clay on a work surface that has cornstarch sprinkled down. *Careful the clay is hot after being on the stove top!* When cooled, knead it until it becomes clay. You can separate it and add food coloring to make different colors. If you let a clay sculpture dry overnight it will be hard in the morning. Place leftover clay in an airtight container and refrigerate.

If you mix clay like my son did with our yellow clay it makes it look tye-dyed.
