You only need two ingredients for this next project, and the kids are sure to have a blast!
They get to mix gooey ingredients, and when they are done they will have a super fun play clay to create and explore with; Are you ready to make your own?
- 10-12 pieces of bread
- 8 oz of school glue (we used two 4 oz bottles)
- A bowl for mixing
- Begin by cutting the crusts from the bread. I did this part for Rosie and Jewel and then set them up with a large bowl so that they could break the bread into pieces.
- Have kids rip and tear the bread over and over; the finer the crumbs the better.
- Once the bread is all broken up give kids the bottles of glue and let them squeeze them into the bowl. Rosie and Jewel had a lot of fun with that part.
- Continue to mix the ingredients in the bowl until the dough begins to form.
- If the clay feels sticky and isn’t becoming pliable add more bread. Ours was a little sticky so we added two more slices of bread, and that did the trick for us.
- Once the dough is formed remove it from the bowl and knead it with your hands, sprinkling flour as needed.
After a bit of kneading you will be left with a super fun and ultra stretchy play clay!
