Air-dry Clay

2 cups baking soda
1 cup cornstarch
1 ¼ cups water

Mix baking soda and cornstarch together in a saucepan. Add the water. Cook over a medium high heat, stirring constantly, until it is the consistency of mashed potatoes. Spoon the dough onto a plate and cover with a damp cloth to cool.

If you wish to keep your creation, use a few drops of water to smooth them out. Let them air-dry until hard, usually two days. Flip them over a few times during drying so both side dry evenly.


Play dough

Mix together and knead thoroughly:

1 cup salt
1 cup flour
½ cup water

Have more flour available to avoid stickiness as dough is used. Keep in a tightly covered jar or bowl in the refrigerator. It can be kept for a shorter time unrefrigerated.
