If you missed clay this year…

Here is an easy clay recipe you can make this summer with permission from your adult-in-charge!

Making salt dough is really simple and is a great way to practice your math skills while having fun creating!

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour and the salt. Next, slowly add the water while stirring and mixing to create a Play-Doh-like consistency. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes, adding either more flour if the dough is too sticky or more water if it is too dry or crumbly. If you like what you create out of the clay/dough, WITH YOUR ADULTS’ HELP, you can bake it at 200 degrees in the oven. If it is really big, you will need to bake it longer, smaller items for a short time. Watch the dough through the glass on the oven door (with the oven light on) and when it begins to look a little bit golden it is ready to come out! If you have tempera, watercolor or acrylic (best) paint, you can paint your clay/dough after it has been baked!

I will be checking my email each week! You can send me pictures of whatever you make and I will be happy to respond to you!

Happy SUMMER!!!!!
