This is another craft I did with Kennedy last week when her school was closed for a teacher development day. I’ve actually tried different versions of this idea a few times, but they’ve never worked. Not this time though, this one actually works!
We started out with a basic air-dry clay recipe. I used a cornstarch based one and it worked like a charm!
[Psst! For this recipe, we added some pumpkin spice for a yummy smell! Check out my very own Pumpkin Spice recipe, right here!]
We mixed the salt and the water first. Then put it on the stove on medium-ish heat and gradually added the spicy cornstarch. 
We kept heating and stirring until it looked like dough. Then we let it cool for like a minute and I burned my hands a bit playing with it cause I couldn’t wait.

We got about 20 of these fun little ornaments out of this batch. I had these little cutters, which are actually for pie pastry and then we made the holes with a straw. The drying time was about 2 days.
