Crayola Model Magic
I love Crayola Model Magic as a type of modeling clay, but I love it more because it has many other uses.
As a modeling clay, it has more resistance than play-doh, so it requires more strength to pinch and poke it. It air dries, and is very light once it has dried. I have made pencil grips out of it, and have used it on resting hand splints as a finger separator. Since it is light, it didn’t add much weight to the splint.
Think outside the box. What uses can you come up with for Model Magic?
