How do I make Christmas ornaments from clay?

Make Christmas Ornaments from Clay

Make your own clay and let the kids' creativity run wild by making Christmas ornaments (Adult supervision required). In a saucepan mix 2 cups of baking soda with 1 cup of cornstarch and 1 1/4 cups of cold water. Stir constantly for 10-15 minutes until it is the consistency of mashed potatoes. Remove to a plate for cooling, covering with a damp cloth. Now comes the fun part! Roll with a rolling pin and cut out flat shapes, or let your kids make 3 dimensional ornaments. To attaches pieces, just dampen and press edges together. Allow the ornaments to air dry overnight. Paint with poster or acrylic paints. When the paints dries, coat with clear nail polish to protect the finished surface.
