DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Bead Clay

In a bowl, mix flour, salt and water.  Slowly mix in warm water until a dough is formed.

Knead 5 minutes until dough is firm.

Make beads by rolling the dough into balls and poking with a straw (big holes) or toothpick (small holes).

Let dry 48 hours.

Paint with acrylic or tempra paints (acrylic covers better, but doesn't come out of clothes)
