Free Salt-Dough play dough Recipe and more from Sunday School Ideas

Sunday School Ideas has shared this Salt-dough play dough reipe with us:

1 c. salt
1 c. warm water
2 c. flour
Note: use only plain all-purpose flour – don't use bread flour or self-rising flour

Combine flour and salt in a mixing bowl. Slowly add ½ the water while stirring with a fork. Slowly add more water, spoonful at a time and continuing to mix with fork, until it creates a ball of dough that is firm and 
just soft enough to knead. (The exact amount of water will depend on the moisture content of the flour as well as the general humidity in your home as you prepare the recipe.) Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface and knead until smooth.

If used for play, dough will keep indefinitely if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. However, if you want to create hard-baked designs, remember that the dough will begin to lose its ability to hold fine detail after about an hour. Detailed designs, such as ornaments made for sale, are best modeled right after the dough has been kneaded.
