Day 2: Go Beyond with Boldness
Today we are in search of the element of boldness. There is no one better in our Bibles to teach us about this than Queen Esther, a woman who risked her own life to save her family and friends. You’ll also be sculpting something out of clay and building a spaceship landing craft. You’ll need to be bold to accomplish these missions. *Home Supplies needed for today: plastic or metal silverware

Bold Modeling Clay Recipe
1. Combine 2 cups of baking soda, 1 cup of cornstarch, and 1 ½ cups of water.
- Cook and stir over medium heat for several minutes. The initial lumpy mixture will gradually turn smooth and then thicken. When it is the consistency of mashed potatoes, it is done!
- Spoon the dough onto a cutting board or waxed paper. Let it cool a bit.
- When it is cool enough to work with, knead it until the dough has a smooth consistency.
- To add color, flatten the dough and put a few drops of food coloring onto the center of the flattened dough. Fold it over and knead it until the food coloring is distributed evenly.
- The 3 balls of dough sent home were made from ½ of this recipe.
