Make your own Gluten free Play Clay

 

Most children like to play with clay, but the most common brands all contain wheat. Most homemade  recipes call for wheat flour. By Making your own it reduces cost and you can make it wheat free. Have fun making  your own gluten-free clay with your child and then spend countless hours  playing with it. And if your  mini Michael Angelo  is a clay eater ( as many are) , don't worry.
