Baker's Clay

  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1 1/2 cups water

Mix all ingredients with hands. More water may be needed. Knead for 5 minutes and it's ready to use. Mold with hands or use cookie cutters. The salt in the dough will dry your hands out.

Rub a little salad oil on your hands before working with the clay. Don't forget to oil the child's hands too.

The dough can be colored with a few drops of food coloring. Store unused portions in airtight containers in the refrigerator. Remember to oil hands before sculpting with the clay.
