Making Play Clay
Play clay is similar to playdough but it has somewhat of a softer consistency. The kids loved playing with this clay and molding it into different shapes.
To make play clay, I found this recipe from a Science experiment book (affiliate link) I bought for our kids. Every now and then, we’ll go through the book, find an experiment or two that we want to try, then we’ll try them. It’s such a delight to watch kids marvel at science.
