green crafts-making bead necklaces!!

ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • hot water

Combine the flour, cornstarch, and salt. Mix a little bit of tempera paint powder into the hot water, table spoon of olive oil and add it a little bit at a time to the dry mix, until it forms a sticky dough. The consistency should be similar to clay.


Roll the dough into small balls (these will be your beads) and poke a hole into each one with a pencil, knitting needle, ortoothpick. Make sure to make the hole is big enough for yarn or string to pass through.

When the clay is dry, it’s ready for beading. Cut a piece of yarn into the appropriate length for your child’snecklace or bracelet, wrap a piece of masking tape around one end to make stringing easier, knot the other end, and set them to work!
