Salt Dough Maps - Had to re-pin this! I'm also from Alabama and had to make one of these salt-maps when I was in school (many years ago). It was one of my favorite school projects to do. Glad to know that salt maps are still around.
North America Salt Map made from salt dough: 1C salt, 1C flour, 1/2C water, food coloring. Adjust batches as needed. These were great fun. I think almost everyone in my family made one of these at one time or another in our school years. I loved how the glistened!
Salt Dough Maps: Great for when you're learning about a specific place. I would love to let my kids pick anywhere on the globe and then learn about it. And it would be a dream to, when they are older, go back and pick their favorite place, and visit!
