This craft was a test run for what I want to do with my 3 year olds at work. Granted, I don't expect them to do anything too fancy, but I wanted to see how well salt dough worked and, more importantly, how quickly it dries out.
2 cups plain flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water
Drying time: An hour in the oven at 200F, flipping them half way. The thicker pieces air dried over a week after I grew impatient with the oven method.
I am slightly concerned that they might try to eat the dough, but it's nothing their digestive systems haven't seen before.
These ones will be attached to Christmas presents under the tree for the in-laws, in lieu of a stick-on-Christmas-tag.
