Simple Salt Dough Recipe
Homemade salt dough is the one of the quickest, easiest DIY activities for parents and children. In addition to being a great way to develop fine motor skills, it’s a fantastic sensory activity. It’s so versatile it can be easily incorporated into science, math and letter recognition exercises.
The simple salt dough recipe is a staple in our house and we love to use it for anything from Christmas ornaments to homemade volcanoes. I have tons of posts cued up with fun activities that use the salt dough playdough (in case you don’t already know the recipe!).
