Wacky Wednesday

 Story image 1_0

The rain didn’t dampen our spirits yesterday, for the last Wednesday of summer school.  The highlight of the day was making salt dough.  Students worked in groups to measure and mix the ingredients.  They loved getting messy, using only their hands to mix the dough.  After mixing and a little cleaning, the students were excited to CREATE.  Students made a variety of objects with their dough including snakes, snowmen, and cinnamon rolls.  Each student took a portion of the dough home.  Many of them planned to dry the dough and even paint it.   If you would like to make your own salt dough, it is very easy.  Here is the recipe they used: 2 cups flour 1 cup salt 1 cup warm water - They didn’t use quite that much.  Add water or a little more flour as needed.  The dough should not be “sticky” or “stringy”. You can also add food coloring. Have fun!
