Making salt dough at home is a fun, easy, and kid-friendly activity. It requires minimal ingredients, is very versatile, and can be a great activity for your home classroom! Your kids are sure to love making it with you and watching their craft come to life. In just 1 - 2 days, the dough dries into an inexpensive, fun keepsake for your friends and family to enjoy for a lifetime! 


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Food coloring (optional) 

Step 1

Combine water and salt in a large bowl.

Step 2

Gradually mix in the flour and stir until the mixture is well combined and forms a ball.

Step 3

If desired, add food coloring (I used 2 drops of red to create this pink color).

Step 4

On a lightly floured surface, knead dough until firm.

Step 5

Place your child’s hands or feet in the dough to create an imprint. Decorate to your liking and let dry 1 - 2 days.

Step 6

Enjoy your beautiful keepsake!
