Mix together the dry ingredients. Mix constantly while adding the water slowly. You may not need all the water. The mixture should not be sticky.
Knead 10 minutes until the dough is firm.
Roll out the dough to about ¼ inch thickness and cut with cookie cutters (just like you would cookies).
Store extra in a plastic bag for up to 3 weeks.
You can let air dry for 48 hours (in a dry, breezy location)
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Bake on a foil covered cookie sheet for about 30 minutes or until light brown.
Paint with acrylic or tempra paints. (acrylic cover better, but don't wash out of clothes)
