⚪️Salt Play-Doh⚪️

By ChennaiMom

Salt play-doh(dough) is a simply-effective toy recipe that can be made at home for our toddlers using house hold items, which will keep them engaged with hours and hours of never-ending, imaginatively-creative play😁😛

Required Ingredients:

  • Salt
  • Flour
  • Water

Materials Required:

  • Measuring cups
  • Big bowl

How To Make:

  • Take 1 cup of salt and flour in bowl and mix it together (I have used wheat flour)

  • Make a well in the middle of the salt-flour mixture and pour 1/2 cup of water and start the kneading process to form a dough (baby moo helped mommy with the kneading😉)

  • You should keep kneading till you a make dough ball (as we do for making chappathi's) And make the big ball into small balls (so that it will be easy for your toddlers to play with or you can give them one or two balls at a time and save the remaining for the later play)

  • Place the dough balls (number is of your choice, I gave 4 dough balls to baby moo) on a plate along with other play doh tools (if you have, or else you can do as I did:- I just took all of his toys that can be used in this play and also gave cookie cutters, etc..,) and let your toddler play

[You might wonder, what's that? one dough ball is in different color🤔 — We just experimented one dough ball by mixing liquid orange food coloring into it and it was nice 👍🏻 (the color might stick to your hand at first but after kneading for a while it will get reduced)
But then as it was our very first doh recipe I just stopped with one color😁]

We made different shapes such as star ⭐️, heart ❤️, circle, chocolate 🍫 (you can scroll down and see how we made the chocolate squares😎) etc..,

Mommy made baby moo to count the chocolate squares and helped him to arrange them in numerical order

But then, our little ones have their own way of learning 🤷🏻‍♀️ he just wanted to arrange them in a line 🤦🏻‍♀️

We even made different sized snakes and baby moo made the big snake to drink water 😛 it was such a great, pretend play with the snakes 🐍😂

These salt doh can be good for week as long as you place them in a ziplock bags or airtight containers

If left untouched and exposed to air and heat for longer period of time the dough will be thickened as hard as a stone

And so we kept the shapes which he made outside to make a new activity for later play😎

This activity stimulates the creativity of our little ones with the effective cognitive skills development also a very good hand gripping exercise for our little hands☺️ which would improve their writing skills

Make this super-simple play-doh recipe with your toddler and have fun modeling and molding the doh balls with their creative-imaginations flowing into the play my lovlies😍
