Both girls really liked playing with the clay. We used the simple salt dough recipe provided in our teachers manual. Our clay pots are waiting now to dry, and then we'll paint them, just for fun!
1/2 cup corn starch
1/2 cup salt
3/4 cup flour
slowly add in 1/2 cup * of water until clay is easily kneaded without being too tacky
you can also add food coloring for an earthy color
*I needed to add a little more than that to get mine to stay together....just add it slowly, as needed.
