Oatmeal Clay Wreath

What could be more fun than mixing up your own oatmeal clay and turning it into a treasure to present to Mom, Dad or the Grandparents.


1 cup of rolled oats (instant or old fashioned)      
2/3 cup of flour (possibly more)
1/2 cup of water
food coloring


Note:  If you wish to add food coloring to the clay, it works best to add it to the water.

Mix all the ingredients together

Knead the dough on a floured surface until it is smooth and not sticky

Give each child a ball of dough

Have them roll it out and cut it out according to what shape you wish

It takes 1 - 2 days to dry. 

Note:  make a hole at the top to insert something to hang the ornament with.
Add the decorations (paint if you didn't use food coloring)
