Today Maya and I made some ‘sand clay ‘.
The ingredients are ;
1 cup (sieved) play sand
1/2 cup cornstarch
3/4 cup water
1 teaspoon alum
golden glitter & seashells (optional)
And instructions to make it are ;
1) Mix alum, cornstarch, glitter & sand with wooden spoon.
2) Add water and mix.
3) Cook on medium to high heat until cornstarch dissolves, and continue to mix until a playdough consistency forms.
4) Cool a little, then sculpt.
And this is what we made ;
It’s a good idea to sculpt quickly as the clay does harden quite fast , and it then becomes tough for little fingers!
In the background you can also see a pot, and a babies’ cradle which Maya made – but we thought the candle was the prettiest…
