•1 cup cornstarch
•2 cups baking soda
•1 ¼ cups water
Combine cornstarch and baking soda in a medium to large pan. Gradually add water and stir until smooth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until consistency is doughlike.
After cooled, knead on counter or cutting board and let your child mold his clay to create his work of art. Provide cookie cutters if desired.
When the dough is dried, your child can then paint it however he or she wishes. You can store any remaining dough in a plastic bag for later use.
