Play Clay Tips

  • Make sure children's hands are completely clean before beginning a clay or dough project.
  • If clay gets too dry, renew it with a few drops of water.
  • If clay is too sticky, knead in more flour, cornstarch or baking soda.
  • Cover extra clay with a damp cloth while working to prevent drying.
  • To color clay: either knead in food coloring or cake-decorating coloring paste.
  • Most clays can be colored with acrylic paints when dry.
