Looking for something to do with the kiddos on a cool day? This morning it was “too cold to go outside and play” according to the toddler, so we decided to do something Halloween – and frankly, I am tired of playing with Halloween stickers and we’ve decorated about 900 foam pumpkins since we bought the kit last weekend.
She loves pumpkins.
So, I searched around and found a recipe for clay that actually stays white after you bake it. As a bonus, it was simple. Check out the recipe we used below.
White Baked Clay Ornament Recipe
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 cup baking soda
3/4 cup water
combine ingredients and boil on the stove, whisk until it’s the consistency of mashed potatoes and then put the mixture into a bowl to cool off. It should come together as it cools and allow you to knead the dough. To cook it, it literally took two minutes. It started to boil and then come to the right texture.
Bake for one hour at 375 degrees – turn over half way through.
Don’t make the mistake of using non-stick spray or anything like that in the pan, it will cause the ornaments to get brown spots. Lesson learned.
