DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Air Dry or Bake Clay #2

In a saucepan, boil salt and hot water.

Stir cornstarch and cold water together in a separate bowl.  Once the cornstarch dissolves, add this mixture to the boiling water.  Whisk constantly

Reduce heat to low and cook until mixture is a stiff dough.  Make sure to stir constantly so it doesn't burn.

Drop dough onto table and, once cool, knead for 5 minutes until firm.

Roll out the dough to about 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)

OR

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.  Bake on a foil covered cookie sheet for about 1 hour

Paint with acrylic or tempra paints.  (acrylic cover better, but don't wash out of clothes)
