We found this great site with a recipe for a quick drying salt dough recipe from Rainy Day Mum.
To go along with our Gingerbread Man Literature Study, we decided to have the kids make their own Gingerbread Man ornaments using the salt dough. Instead of white we used wheat flour which made the salt dough a light brown. Rolled it out and sprinkled some cinnamon to make it smell yummy. The kids used a gingerbread man cookie cutter to cut out a shape, and added cloves for the eyes & nose. A straw was used to make a hole in the top.
We're not sure if it is because we used wheat, but the cooking time was about 2 1/2 minutes in the microwave.
