Homemade Clay

It is cold here in Wisconsin, -22 degrees again this morning. 
Cabin fever is starting to set into my boys.

Homemade clay to the rescue!



 Homemade Clay
What you need:
 4 cups of flour
1 1/2 cups of salt
1 1/2 cups of water

Mix the salt and flour in a bowl.
Add water gradually to form a ball.
Knead (pound, roll and pull) until it no longer falls apart.
Do your project and allow it to dry at room temperature for approximately 2 days (more for larger or thick projects)

Paint

Store any unused clay in a sealed bag in the fridge. Allow it to warm to room temperature before you use it again.

  5. Looks like a great pass time since it is much to cold to build snowmen!

  6. I hope you warm up soon. This bitter cold is making me feel like a bear in hibernation. Looks like you are making the most of your time indoors. Love that you got crafty with the kids.
