Clay Dying

You know what I like best about homeschooling? You can get dirty, and call it education. Really!! We have been learning about Mozambique lately as our part in a World Expo with our homeschool group (we are soooooo excited!!) So today we tried to dye a table cloth with clay. Not sure if it will work yet, but it was a hell of a lot of fun making it. We mixed up the clay with soy milk (heard that the protein in the soy milk helps the color to stick...) and stamped it onto a cotton sheet. In the process we got covered up to our elbows in clay, and came dangerously close to sharing our 'chocolate pudding' with a few unsuspecting friends...We'll see how it turns out, and you can bet that there will be pictures from the Expo to come.
Have a great (and messy) day, everyone!
