How to make home made clay.

This home made clay is really simple to make and doesn't consist of many ingredients. All you need is:

75g of bicarbonate of soda.
75g of cornflour.
100g of salt.

  1. In a saucepan mix together the bicarbonate of soda, the salt and 80ml of water. Bring it to the boil.
  2. In a bowl mix together the cornflour and 60ml of water. Stir it well.
  3. Once the salt water has boiled take it straight off the heat and mix in the cornflour and water.
  4. Keep stirring vigorously until it forms into a thick dough.
  5. Kneed the dough for a couple of minutes whilst it is cooling.

You can then use the clay to make whatever you like. We made a monster and a hand print ornament. 

We put the clay in the airing cupboard to help it harden. Once it is dry you can then paint your creations.
