Once cool knead until it is smooth.  If your clay is a little damp add a bit of corn starch and work it into the clay.  Ours was not damp.

You can add food coloring to your pot mixture before cooking the ingredients.  I opted to leave the clay white so we could paint some of our creations once they are dry.  Rosie and Jewel have had lots of fun exploring with the clay and we have done some really neat art activities with it, too!  Check back with us to see the fun ways we have been using our two ingredient clay.
