Salt Dough Recipe


Salt dough is an easy and fun activity to do with the kids.

We had fun making a batch of Christmas Tree ornaments! Just a tip though - keep them out of reach of cheeky dogs!

Here's what you need:

4 Cups Plain Flour

1 Cup Salt

1 1/2 Cups Water

Mix together the salt and flour. Add the water and mix with your fingers. ( yes it will be a big sticky mess to start with!)

Once combined, knead for 4-5 minutes.

Roll flat to approximately 1-2cm in thickness.

Use cookie cutters to cut out your shapes.

Poke holes in the shapes if you want to hang them.

Bake for approximately 1 hour (or until golden) at 150 deg.

Once baked, varnish or paint, then thread onto cord We used Bakers Twine. Add beads to add extra colour!
