Making Salt Dough Koru

 

 
 

We made some simple salt dough koru patterns. It was so fun and easy! Here's what you need to do:


Salt dough is a fabulous, quick and easy clay-type material to make at home or in the classroom with kids.

SALT DOUGH RECIPE

1/2 cup of salt   1/2 cup of water   1 cup of flour

HOW TO MAKE THE SALT DOUGH

Add the 1/2 cup of salt and 1 cup of flour to a bowl, and stir in the water adding it slowly.  You may not need all of the water. You want the dough to be dry. If it gets sticky add more flour. Knead the dough and then roll out and use as you want.
Once you have made the shapes you want then you need to dry them so you can paint them.. Cook in the oven for 3mins (pre heat 180 degrees)
