I found in Family Fun a recipe for cornstarch clay. jake saw someone make a whole flock of angry birds on YouTube. Flock. :) He bugged me like crazy to buy clay to make some. I thought maybe clay would be too expensive so when I saw the cornstarch clay, I thought it would work great. I figured we'd let it dry then he could paint it. I even brought down his bomb bird pillow to serve as a model. Such well laid plans. He totally flipped out when we started making them. I think it was because he realized that they weren't the easiest things in the world to make. Then he flipped out when I said we had to let them dry. He basically destroyed them out of frustration. It was great.
