POPCORN NECKLACE 
You will need
Popcorn, Thread & a Needle 
Pop the popcorn according to the instructions on the package. Let it cool... don't eat all of it! ;) 
String a needle with thread, doubled over. Knot the ends of the thread together. Make sure the thread is long enough to make a necklace when doubled in half. 
Stick the needle thr a piece of popcorn until the knot is pulled up close to the popcorn. Continue to string popcorn onto the needle, until you fill up the thread, leaving about a handful at the end of the thread. 
Cut the needle off, then tie the thread in a knot at the end of the popcorn. Tie the ends together to make a necklace.
NOTES! Please ask an adult to help you thread the needle, if you need help. You can also try adding beads, cranberries or other items to the necklace. Bracelets can als be made out. 

NON-TOXIC MODELING CLAY 
You will need:
2 cups baking soda 
1 cup cornstarch 
1 1/4 cup water 
(Food coloring, unless you want white clay.) 

Mix the baking soda, cornstarch and water together in a bowl with a wooden spoon. Transfer it to a saucepan. 
Please ask an adult to help you with the cooking on the stove. Cook the baking soda dough in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring the whole time. The mix will remain liquid for several minutes, but after 4-8 minutes it will start to thicken. Stir more rapidly until the dough begins to pull away from the pan. 
Remove the pan from the heat and turn off burner. Put the dough in a bowl to cool. 
After 10 minutes, knead the dough with your hands. If you want to add food coloring, now is the time to do that. You can separate the dough into smaller portions so you'll have different colors of clay, if you'd like. Put the clay in a plastic bag or air-tight container. In about 2 hours, the clay will be ready for you to use. 
NOTES! This clay is very easy to work with and can be easily modeled by just about any age. The clay is non-toxic, but won't taste very good if you eat it. It will keep several weeks in an air-tight bag or container. If you'd like to keep the things you make, the clay will air dry. Once it's completely dry you can paint it, if you are using white clay.
