Fun Finds For Mom

New play clay recipe

I love it when the kids wake up early and get started on their own crafty activities (and “paint” their nails with a marker). This weekend, my daughter drew a tiger, an owl and a princess, then handed me a new play clay recipe she found. I whipped up a batch and we made snowmen, a heart and a happy bear. I loved the smoothness and snowy white color of the clay. Here’s the super simple recipe:


2 cups ARM & Hammer Pure Baking soda (1 pound package)

1 cup cornstarch

1 1/4 cup cold water

1. Stir together baking soda and corn starch in saucepan. Add water and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. When mixture is the consistency of moist mashed potatoes, turn out on a plate and cover with a damp cloth.

2. When Play Clay is cool enough to handle, gently pat until it’s smooth, then create!
