Natural Sand Art

Sand Clay
1 cup sand
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 tsp. cream of tartar
3/4 cup hot water

Mix sand, cornstarch and cream of tartar in an old saucepan. Add hot water. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture is very thick. This will only take a few minutes. When slightly cooled, form clay into castles or structures. Allow several days to dry. After shaping their castles have the children insert toothpicks for flagpoles where they wanted flags to go. Once dry, glue felt flags to the end of the toothpicks.
