Bread Clay Recipe
  • 10-12 pieces of bread
  • 8 oz of school glue (we used two 4 oz bottles)
  • A bowl for mixing
Instructions
  • Begin by cutting the crusts from the bread.  I did this part for Rosie and Jewel and then set them up with a large bowl so that they could break the bread into pieces

  • Mix the ingredients well and knead for several minutes.  If the clay feels sticky and isn't becoming pliable add more bread.  Ours was a little sticky so we added two more slices of bread, and that did the trick
