Cornstarch and Salt Clay

So, during art camp last week, I wanted to do clay one day. I saved it for the last day, so the kids could get creative with it while I displayed last minute art for the artshow at the end of the day. I made cornstarch and salt clay. I tripled the recipe, which made it really hard to manage in the making process. It required heating over the stove and with that much clay it was hard to stir. I would do it again, just not so much. Anyways, the kids made a crayon holder and then whatever kind of animal they wanted. I really liked the whiteness of this clay, and the fact that it air dried.
