For those of you who have been to our studios or to one of our on-the-go studio classes you know that all of us at Kidcreate Studio aren’t shy when it comes to making a mess! But what you may not know (although I’m sure it’s no surprise) is that we get messy at home quite a bit too. So when I found a recipe for homemade Model Magic, you guessed it, my kids and I had to make it!
If you’re not familiar with Model Magic you’re really missing out! It’s non-toxic air dry clay made by Crayola. It’s light weight, colorful and dries to a hard finish in about 24 hours. Kids love the stuff! Even, parent’s love to play with the stuff! The only downside to Model Magic is that it’s a bit on the pricey side. That is one of the reasons why I was excited about this homemade recipe.
(I would like to apologize to the person who developed this recipe for not giving them the credit they deserve- it’s amazing!!! The problem is, I just can’t remember where I found the recipe. So, if this is your invention, let me know so we can acknowledge you!)
Here’s the recipe. . .
2 cups baking soda
1 cup cornstarch + additional for kneading
1-1/2 cups cold water
food coloring- 5-10 drops depending on desired color
