DIY lint modeling mixture

Recycle your dryer lint into fun for kids?  Why not! 

3 C dryer lint
2 C water
2/3 C flour
3 drops oil of cloves (optional)

Combine the lint and water in a saucepan.  Slowly add the flour and oil of cloves if using, stirring to prevent lumps from forming.  Cook slowly over a low flame, continuously stirring until the mixture forms peaks.  Use like paper mache or press into a mold.  Dries hard and durable in 3-5 days.  You can paint if you wish.  Great for Christmas ornaments or rainy days.
