Kid Activity To Try: Salt Dough

I stumbled on a book at the library about Salt Dough, and it seems like it would be the perfect kid crafting activity. Apparently Salt Dough is a make-at-home modeling clay created from flour (2 cups), salt (1 cup) and water (3/4 cup). I love that no special ingredients are needed. Just mix ingredients, knead, shape and bake.

Next time we're stuck indoors and need a fun activity, I hope to bust this one out.

More details on the recipe and a video demo can be found here.


  1. I'd be willing to bet you already know this, but it's very easy and very fun to make oobleck at home as well. Non-newtonian fluids for the win!

  2. Luther - I had no idea - thanks for sharing!
