Christmas Craft: Dough Bead Jewelry

Have children create Christmas gifts using this fun dough bead recipe.

Before class, mix together..

  • 1 cup of baking soda,
  • 1/2 cup of cornstarch,
  • several drops of food coloring, and
  • 3/4 cup water.

You’ll need to mix a batch for each color. Cook over medium heat and stir constantly until the mixture solidifies. Don’t overcook. When the dough cools, knead it until smooth and pliable. Store in a tightly covered container.

Have children shape the dough into beads of all shapes. Using a toothpick, have them poke a hole through the center of each bead. Help children make the hole large enough for a shoe string to fit through. Then have children string the beads on the shoe string.

Give children a container to hold their beaded jewelry until next week when they’ll be dry enough to take home.
