We are making ornaments out of homemade clay. Here is the recipe:
2 cups Flour
1 cup Salt
1 Cup Water
1 1/2 T Oil
Mix until smooth...I had too much liquid and had to add more flour so it wasnt so sticky.
After mixing I set up a workstation with Parchment paper.
Next I rolled the dough with a rolling pin, using lots of flour. This stuff STICKS! After rolling thin, the boys used cookie cutters to cut out Christmas shapes.
After cutting the shapes out they were put on a baking sheet and baked for 1 hour at 250 degrees. I think they could have gone a little longer because they arent hard hard....but I didnt want to over bake either and make them brittle.
After they cooled I removed them from the pan, some of them stuck and I needed to use a spatula to scrape them off....then I put them aside so we can paint and decorate them later.
Now we need to make a Walmart run...I promised the boys glitter for the ornaments. Why! Why! What was I thinking?? Glitter....UGH.
I will post pictures of them later, probably tomorrow.
