DIY CRAFT CLAY!

   This was found at www.busybeekidscrafts.com .  Lots and lots of great stuff to do with the kids (even the adults that want to make something of their own stuff)!



Easy Craft Clay

This Easy Craft Clay recipe is a great all purpose clay which can make many different craft projects, from beads to ornaments! It dries to a white, matte finish and can then be painted with either Tempera or acrylic craft paint.





Level of Difficulty: Moderate
This craft clay is easy to make, but requires the use of the stove, make sure children are supervised when making this craft!

Here's how you make it...
1. Mix all the ingredients in a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring consistently, until it is too thick to stir with a spoon.

2. Cool for 15 minutes, or until the dough is cool enough to touch. Knead it for about 5 minutes, or until smooth. Keep dough wrapped in plastic.
Once you have molded it, it will take 1-2 days for the clay to dry. The length of time depends on how thick your craft is: If it is a flat ornament, it may only take 1 day, if it is thick it will take much longer. This clay can be painted with either Tempera or acrylic craft paints.
