Homemade Clay Recipe
This modeling clay is great for sensory exploration and for all sorts of projects for kids. It dries hard and can be formed into creations or used to make foot prints and hand prints.
Modeling Clay Recipe
- 2 Cups of Baking Soda
- 1 Cup of Corn Starch
- 1& 1/2 Cups of Cold Water
- Mix the ingredients together in a large pot
Cook over medium-high heat, stirring almost constantly. The mixture will begin to bubble. Then it will begin to clump together
It doesn't take long at all for the clay to form. Keep stirring until you have a consistency similar to mashed potatoes
Transfer the clay to a bowl and cover it will a damp dish towel until cool
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!
