Salt Dough Map of Italy

We have begun our study of the Roman Republic and
youngest son designed this salt dough map last week as part of his schoolwork.

Salt dough is very easy to make. He measured and mixed it himself. He used the lid of a shoe box as his palate. I have heard of others using pizza boxes.

Here is the recipe:

1 cup white flour
1 cup salt
1/2 cup water

Mix all ingredients to the consistency of play dough.
I just used leftover acrylic paints for him to finish the job.
Didn't he do a wonderful job? I think so.

Blessings to you and your school, Suzie
