This earthy-looking Oatmeal clay makes prehistoric animals come alive.

Oatmeal Clay
1 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup flour
1/2 cup water

Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl.  Add more flour if necessary for the dough to form a lump. Have the children knead the dough on a floured surface until it is smooth. You can add food coloring to the water before mixing the dough, or divide it into balls and add the coloring after the children mix and knead it.

Your children’s finished crafts can air dry overnight.

Note: Children can store the clay in the refrigerator in a ziplock bag for up to 3 days.
