Wednesday, June 28, 2006 Kids Crafts: Recipe for Play Clay (Clay that Air Dries)

Thanks to Christi for this new Play Clay recipe for kids - a clay that doesn't contain any flour, and that will air dry hard in about 36 hours. :) So that you can keep your kids' creations! This would be a fun and cheap summer project - both baking soda and cornstarch are usually available in the bulk section at your supermarket -- which will make it an even cheaper project.
