1 glass of bicarbonate of soda,
1/2 glass of cornflour,
3/4 glass of water.
Mix it all together in pan, when all ingredients connect together heat it up, keep stirring it all the time. When you’ll get playdough consistency, take it out of pan, let it cool and kneed it. Use it for making cute ⛄ as ours.
*You will need card paper, and some wool. Draw and cut out circle, then cut it in half ( paper plate cut in half would be also great for it). Roll semicircle in shape of cone and use glue or double sided tape to stick it together. Cover cone in glue ir double sided tape and attach wool or string to your cone.
