Make Your Own Clay

Making your own art supplies was part of Tip #61 and making your own clay was one of them. So, we finally decided to make some clay. It only takes flour, corn starch, & glue to make it. And now is the time to stock up on some glue since school supplies are cheap. Here is the recipe we used.

My daughter added some glitter to her clay to make it more fun to play with. "Sparkles are fun!" as she would say.

Anyways, if you store it in an airtight container you should be able to reuse it and reuse it. But we leftout her cutouts she did to dry so that we can paint them and add a magnet to the back and make some magnets.

We're in the process of making art projects for fair coming up, so she may enter these.
