Shortly after bringing Megan home she received gift of a subscription to Highlights Magazine. She was really to young at the time so I saved all of the issues. Now that she is older we are having fun going through the magazine and trying some fun activities. Recently we made sun dried clay.
2 cups baking soda
1 cup cornstarch
1 1/4 cup water
Heat all except the food coloring over medium heat until the consistency of mashed potatoes. Allow to cool. Divide into fourths and add food coloring. After making your creation place in a sunny spot and allow to dry.
It was fun and I am thinking that instead of adding food coloring you could allow your creation to dry and then paint them. Possibly making Christmas ornaments for the grandparents. Have fun!
