Toddlers learn so much from messy play. While they’re busy squishing and squelching, pouring and pushing, they’re carrying out an endless stream of experiments to find out about their world.

That's why we love salt dough recipe as it has only THREE ingredients and we bet you already have them in your kitchen cupboard! 

Here's how to make salt dough which will keep your toddler occupied for hours...

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup of salt
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1 cup of flour
  • A large bowl
  • Wooden spoon 
  • An eager toddler! 

Instructions

1) Mix salt and flour together in a large bowl. Your toddler

2) Slowly stir in water. Mix well until it forms a doughy consistency.

3) Nead the dough with your hands until mixture is smooth 

4) Create shapes from the dough by using cookie cutters. Don't have any? Get your toddler to improvise!
