Next we got busy with salt dough. Oh! This stuff makes me feel a bit nostalgic. My mom made this for us all the time. In fact, I don't think she ever bought store bought play dough. But she was always mixing up a batch of this stuff for my friends and I.
Have I mentioned how awesome my mom is? Yep. She really is.
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
Mix it all together. Voila! You've got salt dough. Tough stuff, right?
For Art Club I made a giant batch of this stuff. I think I used about 8 cups of flour, 4 cups of salt and 4 cups of water.
I got out a bunch of rubbers stamps, play dough tools, rolling pins, toothpicks and other random things we found around the the house and let the kids go wild with them.
I lined cookie sheets with wax paper and the kids put their projects on them to dry when they were finished.
