Use cookie cutters or mold Salt Clay by hand, then bake in a 300 degree oven for use in creating refrigerator magnets, jewelry, ornaments, keychains, necklaces, and more.

Stir together:
2 cups plain flour

1 to 1 1/2 cups cold water

Knead well until it forms a soft ball. Line a baking tray with aluminum foil, make the shapes you want, and bake in the oven at 300 degrees or until hard (about one hour).

Gingerbread Playdough   added 1-24-00 Original Author Unknown

lots of cinnamon, allspice, ginger, nutmeg, whatever!

Potato Dough  added 1-24-00 Original Author Unknown

Need: 4 or 5 potatoes, 1 - 1 1/2 cups flour

Bake 4 or 5 potatoes, in the skin, until soft inside. Peel, and discard peel. Mash potatoes, I use a potato ricer, so I get a nice fine, even texture. Combine 1 - 1 1/2 cups of flour to every 2 cups of mashed potato and form a dough. My son loves playing with this dough, just so he can eat the scrapes. It has no raw egg in it, and leaving it out for a bit, there is nothing in it to spoil. The color will gray after a while, but if you add food coloring, when you make it, you won't even notice. If you have extra, roll it is balls and press your thumb in one side, and roll it across the back side of a fork. Cook in boiling water for 1 min. and serve either with tomato sauce or butter or even brown gravy. They taste great.
