The Imagination Tree: Salt Dough Olympic Medals!

Salt Dough Recipe: 1 cup salt1 cup plain (all purpose) flour3/4 cup water Simply combine the flour and salt in a bowl, then add the water gradually. Knead the mixture until it becomes a dough-like consistency. It will feel very grainy because of the high salt content, but that’s fine. We squeezed some glitter confetti into our dough to make it sparkly, just for fun! Once we had made our dough, Cakie rolled it out until it was 1-2cm thick. We found our wooden numbers (same as the wooden letters we used in this play dough letter impression post) and Cakie identified the numbers 1, 2 and 3.

We talked about 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and what that means in relation to the Olympic races and contests. The next day they painted them gold, silvery pink (!)
