Salt Dough Animals
Make your own animal sculptures using the supplies you have in your own pantry!
Gather Your Supplies:
- 1 cup flour
- ½ cup salt
- ½ cup warm water
- Mixing bowl
- Baking tray
- Cooling rack
Mix together the dry ingredients.
Add water to dry ingredients and mix and knead until dough forms.
Pro tip: If the dough is too crumbly, add warm water a little at a time. If the dough sticks to your hands, add more flour.
Dust your creating surface with flour.
Sculpt your animals using the dough. Get creative!
Carefully use a spatula to lift your creations onto a baking sheet. Bake for 1.5 to 3 hours at 200 degrees. (Check your dough creations after 1.5 hours and add on time in 30-minute increments as needed. The clay will harden in the air so it does not need to be completely baked through).
Let your salt dough creations cool on a cooling rack.
Once completely cool and hardened, you can paint your creations (if desired).
