This week we have an Ocean Theme going on at our house. We have been studying ocean creatures and talking a lot about the beach! The girls are really enjoying this, so we may do it for another week! Here are two of the projects that we made this week: hand and foot lobster and foot print fish! Here is a fun book that we have enjoyed while doing the ocean theme! It's called Commotion in the Ocean!
Today we are going to make some sand castle clay! To make this, you will need:
1 cup sand
1/2 cup cornstarch
3/4 cup liquid starch
Combine the sand and cornstarch in an old pot. Stir in liquid starch. Cook this mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly. The mixture will thicken and turn into a dough. Remove from the stove and allow to cool. Remove the clay and knead for 30 seconds. After creating your sculptures, allow them to dry until hard.
