Salt Dough is a great source for making various ornaments and crafts with your kids. Making it is also not difficult since you can create it within 10 minutes using just 3 homely ingredients!
- 2 Cups Flour
- 1 Cup Salt
- 3/4th Cup Water
- A Container
1. Salt and Flour
Mix 2 cups of flour and 1 cup of salt in a medium-size container.
Add water to the mixture.
Once you add water, mix the mixture using a wooden spoon. You have to make a dough out of the mixture, so add water and mix the ingredients until you get a soft dough. You can also use your hands to knead the dough well.
This is how your dough should look like.
Turn the dough onto a flat surface (such as a chopping board) and knead it with your hands until smooth.
Once you complete the kneading step, start creating your creations from salt dough. You can either use molds or create things with your hands.
Once done, place the creations in the oven at 180C. The thickness of the salt dough regulates the amount of time you should set.
Now that your salt dough creations are hard, you can paint them. Choose acrylic paint to do this step.
Voila! New homemade toys for your kids are ready! Create exceptional things with the same steps using your creativity. You can also make home decor items or crafts with salt dough, visit here for the ideas.
