Baby wipes are a great way to clean up after playing with clay!

Craft Notes

Start with clean hands and work area. Good work surfaces include wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Knead clay until soft and smooth. For best results, clean your hands in between colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces together firmly. Bake on oven-proof glass or metal surface at 130°C (275°F for U.S. customers) for 15 minutes per 6mm (1/4") of thickness. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT exceed the above temperatures or recommended baking time. Baking should be completed by an adult. Wash hands after use. For best results, clean hands in between colors.
