Keeping 4 kids busy in the summer can be a task. Throw one new thing into the mix though, and they get all excited.
I found a recipe for salt dough that is easy to put together. It can keep kids busy for at least an hour and the clean up is easy.
To make the dough you need:
- 2 cups of flour
- 1/2 cup of salt
- 1 cup of warm water
Combine your flour and salt in a plastic bowl and slowly add the water while mixing with a spoon.
Once the dough is all combined just divide the dough between kids.
The kids used empty water bottles as rolling pins.
Keep unused dough covered with a damp paper towel.
My oldest made her hand print. ("Like the stars in Hollywood", she said.)
Please note: I use the cheapest flour and salt I can find for this project.
