Need a quick and simple activity for the children or classroom? This no-cook recipe is simple and perfect for creative children. It can also be used as a learning tool and game. Give each child a portion of the dough and have them make formations appropriate for their age. For example, “make two spheres, form a line that is three inches long,” or “make a smiley face!” I use this recipe as a last minute activity when we are going to be home inside or having a play date.
NO-COOK MODELING DOUGH
2 Cups flour
1 cup salt
tempera paint powder
Mix ingredients, adding water to make the dough pliable. Not too much it will be too sticky.
The dough can air dry to harden or can be baked at 300 degrees for an hour. The time may depend on the thickness of the creation.
