I very often make salted dough (homeplasticine) for their children. It's incredibly fast and simple, and the children are delighted, especially since my eldest son loves to sculpt. And the dough is good because it is absolutely harmless - no chemistry, so it can be given even to children under 2 years old. How to make a salted dough: Different recipes are found on different sites, I personally do so: 2 glasses of flour, a glass of fine salt, a spoon of sunflower oil (many recipes do not write this, but I add, glue or baby cream also fits), and a glass water (water may be slightly less, look at the consistency of the dough - so as not to stick to the hands), you can also add half a glass of starch. The dough should not turn liquid, but it does not crumble, and to keep the shape. Molding is an extremely creative activity, useful and interesting for children. How much can you make up for a craftsman's dough? Here is a selection of ideas for mastery with children from salted dough.
