Homemade Clay Recipe

I can't remember where I found this recipe, but I picked it because it sounded SO easy and I knew it wasn't going to make 18 tons of clay/dough. Sweet P calls it PlayDoh because that's what it ended up feeling like, maybe a bit harder than PlayDoh, but very similar in texture.

The Recipe: Homemade Clay Dough

What you need:
1 cup flour + 1 tsp flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup water

Mix 1 cup flour and salt together, then slowly add the water, stirring as you go.
After I stirred it a few times and it started to mush together (like my technical terms?), I dumped it all out on the counter and kneaded it for about 5 minutes (which was hard because Sweet P was yelling PayDoh! PayDoh! asking me for it). It was a little sticky so I added about 1 tsp of flour.
Roll out and cut out shapes, smush for awhile or sculpt!

You can leave your shapes to dry for 48 hours, but we baked ours at 300 degrees for 30 minutes.

We painted them with tempura paint, although I'm sure acrylic works better (it just doesn't wash out!).
