How to Make Salt Dough

By:

4 Comments

Mix up a batch of salt dough and entertain your child for hours. There’s so much fun to be had – use cookie cutters for neat shapes or sculpt freestyle. Let it dry and use acrylic paints for even more decorating fun!
 

Materials:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 3/4 cup water
  • Food coloring (optional)
  • Mixing bowl

Steps:

  1. Mix together salt, flour, and water in a large mixing bowl.
     
  2. Knead in food coloring (if desired). Continue kneading until mixture reaches a doughy consistency.
     
  3. Use immediately or store in an airtight container for later use.

I have used this dough recipe for years. At one point, I found a recipe that included adding white Ivory dish washing liquid. It makes the dough creamier to work with and results in a smoother finished product. I have ornaments made from both recipes that my children and I made in 1989. I also recommend sealing the finished product with an acrylic glaze (gloss or matte)...spray on works just fine. Hope this helps.

thankyou very much,my grandchild will love this..great for snowy days.

I TAUGHT KINDERGARTEN FOR SEVERAL YEARS & USED THIS TO CREATE SHAMROCK NECKLACES WHEN TALKING ABOUT ST. PATRICKS DAY! PRETTY COOL. ON TREE OF THE LEAVES WE WROTE WITH GOLD PEN, FATHER, SON, & HOLY SPIRIT.

I remember this from when I was in grammer school, we made CA maps with it. I am now a grandmother of 15 and I'm going to show it to my grandchildren. Maybe I can get them away from their DSL's. Thank You for the recipe. Donna
