This was a great Rainy Day activity. I googled a recipe for Salt Dough and whipped it up.
If you can, buy the salt without Iodide--why??? because it's cheaper for salt dough. I keep it away from my regular salt.
I gave each child a bowl of dough-covered with a plate so it wouldn't get crusty. I also gave them some toothpicks to help strengthen and mold.
