  • Salt Dough Recipe

    Good for making ornaments, beads, volcanoes and more.

    12 cups flour
    12 cups salt
    7/8 cup water
    2 T. vegetable oil
    Food coloring

    Place flour and salt in a large bowl and mix well. Pour in the water and mix well. Pour in the oil and mix again. You can knead with your hands (more fun) or stir with a wooden spoon. Take the dough out of the bowl and place on a clean, smooth surface that has been sprinkled with a little flour. Knead the dough until it is firm and wrap in plastic wrap or place in a plastic bag. Put in the fridge for at least a half hour before using.

    To color the dough, divide the dough into sections. Take one section at a time, roll into a ball and then punch down a little well into the center of the dough. Add a few drops of food coloring into the well. Fold the dough over the top of the well and start kneading until the color is mixed in. Add more color is desired.

    Now you are ready to make stuff. You can roll out the dough with a rolling pin and cut with cookie cutters or you can shape into beads to make jewelry. Use a chopstick or toothpick to poke a hole in your shapes if you want to hang ornaments or string beads.
