Plaster of Paris is a fun material to work with. It starts out as a powder that you mix with water to make a thick gooey liquid. You can then pour, color, shape, or press things into it. It dries fairly quickly into whatever shape you’ve chosen.
You can buy it at local craft stores, the hardware store, or online.
Here are some fun Plaster of Paris crafts to try with your kids. We’ve tried the first 5 and loved them. The second 5 look awesome and are on our list to try soon.
