Every now and then it’s nice to play with some dough and make something “for keeps”. This salt dough recipe is super easy and monsters are the perfect thing for toddlers to make as anything goes! Great for a Halloween craft, too!
However, the monsters took several days to dry. I had to hide them so that F didn’t see them and want to play with them. After three days I gave up on the largest ones ever hardening, but finally the three smallest ones were ready.
Note: When I have made salt dough crafts before I have carefully microwaved them to help them dry. I don’t recommend that for this activity due to the plastic components.
Meet Spike, Mrs Blue Hat, and Long Ears!
They soon joined the “original” monster which F made when we were making the Glowing Salt Dough.
This made a lovely change from our play dough creations as we had something to show for it afterwards!
