From 2 years old, the little ones love to knead it, to roll it in their hands …

… cut it and invent little figurines that they can decorate.

Your children will imagine lots of models in salt dough, as if they were plasticine.

When they’re done playing, let their creations air dry for 2 days.

And finally, cover the objects with a thin layer of clear nail polish.

This helps protect their little masterpieces for years to come.

Additional advice

– If your dough sticks too much or if it is too runny, you can add a little flour.

– Food coloring has a tendency to stain, even if it comes off quite easily in washing. Watch out for clothes and the table! Protect them well.

– You don’t have to use food coloring. You can leave the paste white. After the paste has hardened, children can paint them with acrylic paint or water-based paint.
