Homemade Clay and Playdough Recipes

These recipes are easy and fun to do together. We are going to try this homemade clay recipe today. Then after the kids’ creations air dry, I’m going to have them paint them. Sounds like a good summer activity to me! How about you?

Homemade Clay

2 c. baking soda

1 c. corn starch

1 1/4 c. water

Mix in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir and continue to stir until the consistency is like mashed potatoes (about 5 minutes).

God’s Wisdom for Little Boys and Girls

A friend showed me these two books–God’s Wisdom for Little Boys by Jim and Elizabeth George and God’s Wisdom for Little Girls by Elizabeth George. She purchased the books from the local homeschool convention and is going to give them to a friend who is adopting two children.
