All you need to make salt dough is white flour, salt, water, and an oven to dry out your creations. To make a batch, mix together 1 cup of salt, 2 cups of water, and 3/4 cup of water in a bowl until you have a uniform dough, then knead it on a floured surface until it is smooth.
It will keep for several days in an airtight container, so you can mix up a batch well in advance and then set your kids down to create anything they want. Once they're done sculpting, bake the figures on a cookie sheet in the oven at 350F until dried and hardened. After, the kids can use watercolor or tempera paints to color their creations.
