Making Mud Bricks
From a post by Deb Diehl
More on clay bricks... There is one recipe found in Bible Times Crafts for Kids from Gospel Light. I believe Marketplace 29 AD has one as well. It is also possible to purchase dry clay from ARTCLAY in Racine (I think it's Racine) Wisconsin (1800ARTCLAY). Dry clay is sand like and when mixed with water becomes clay-like or mud-like. You just need to play with the right proportions water to dry clay. Please be careful not to use the recipes that call for sawdust. Sawdust contains chemicals that when breathed in are not good for children. We used children's wading pools and used plastic holiday bread containers to put our "mud" into. The children who were not stepping in the mud were cutting up straw to put in the mud. The kids had a great time!
Another Mud Brick Recipe:
I just came across another mud brick recipe.
Sells, Teresa. The Ultimate Guide to Kids' Activities: 1,001 Great Ideas for Kids of All Ages. Barbour Publishing, Inc.: Uhrichsville, Ohio, p. 85, number 197.
This is a wonderful resource!
Of course, I did not find this until after our Exodus Rotation. I called a dry clay distributor in Asheville, NC, and they told me just to go dig some of the wonderful red dirt we have in NC. We added a little bit of QuickCrete, fast drying concrete powder to the mix, and straw and water. We formed the bricks in miniature aluminum loaf pans (the throw-away kind) and they worked great! If they got stuck, we could just tear them away. The kids really enjoyed this!
