Playclay

Making Baker's Clay is super easy and the tots helped with each step.

Flour, Salt, and H2o is all that is needed.

I had to go back and do some strong kneading for several mintues to get the clay ready for play.

Exploring, poking, rolling, flattening...

You can't have playclay without breaking out the cookie cutters!

And even make a few lil' animals.

Was testing to see if I could use this playclay for an upcoming art playdate I'm hosting with the O'Mamas
'art-group'. These turned out, however, I think we're still going to try the Scupley just so we can get a more smooth finish with the artwork.

Don't be silly Vick! You have to remember that I have my little esculita here and so it forces me to do these typs of activities with the tots.
