Now, I'm not very crafty at all, but I do like one thing - clay! Well, to be more specific, salt dough. It is very easy to make and works just as well (if not better) than polymer clay.
Salt Dough Recipe
Mix: 1cup of flour and 1/2 cup of salt. Add 1/2 cup of water. Stir. Add more water or flour as needed to make consistency of play dough. Store in plastic wrap. Once you have completed the salt dough, it is ready to be formed. To color your clay, add a few drops food coloring to the dough, and knead until combined. OR paint your clay when dry.
What to Make:
. You can make a variety of items from clay, including clay people, cupcakes, and animals!
There are gazillions of clay items that YOU can make. How about animals?
