2 ingedient homemade white clay recipe - perfect for crafts for kids

Christmas ornament crafts for kids

To make this super easy two ingredients clay recipe you only need cornstarch & baking soda!  We also decided to put in some white glitter – it was the perfect touch!

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • glitter (optional)

Mix the ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat stirring continually. When it starts to bubble and pull away from the sides of the pan it is almost done. Pull it off the heat when it resembles soft playdough and turn onto parchment paper to cool until it is a temperature you and your children are comfortable touching. My kids and I loved playing with and rolling out the warm ornament dough recipe.

love the glitter right in the dough - so pretty for Chrsitams Ornament crafts for kids

We used our nesting star cookie cutters.  You want a medium size star with the smallest star you have to cut out the middle.

Star Christmas Ornaments

The kids pressed perler beads (yep, we got the mega pack to use with our 5 Perler Bead Christmas Crafts for Kids) into the small hearts to decorate them. It was such a simple, beautiful way to decorate these stars. The kids loved helping.

Hint: Leave some stars pretty and white. It makes a beautiful contrast on your tree!

The stars with the start cut out in the middle we filled with perler beads.  Then we baked all of them at 200 F for 50 minutes. We removed the small stars, turned up the oven to 375 F and continued cooking the perler bead filled stars for an additional 15 minutes to get them perfectly melted.

Allow them to cool on the cookie tray before moving. They will slip right off the parchment paper.

Here is a sampling of our finished ornaments. I love them all! The plain ones are so beautifully white, simple, and just the right amount of shimmer. The small star decorated with perler beads is so sweet.

But my favorite are the perler bead filled stars! The ones to the left were melted for 15-20 minutes as apposed to 10 of the ones to the right. I think the ones that are melted more are prettier.
