Oatmeal Clay
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

Here's the clay equivalent of comfort food: a sturdy, nubbly dough that provides hours of smushing and sculpting. It dries rock hard overnight and makes convincingly Jurassic-looking figures and pretty, earthy beads.

What you'll need

  • 1 cup rolled oats (you can use instant or old fashioned)
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour, plus extra
  • ½ cup water
  • Food coloring (optional)
Helpful Tip:

Allow finished creations to air-dry overnight. Leftover clay can be refrigerated in a ziplock bag for up to three days.

How to make it

  1. Oatmeal Clay - Step 1

    Stir together all the ingredients in a large bowl, adding more flour if necessary, until the dough forms a lump. For colored clay, you can add drops of food coloring to the water before combining it with the dry ingredients.

  2. Knead it on a floured surface, adding flour as needed, until it is smooth and not too sticky.
