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
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)
