Dough Map School Project

Updated on June 16, 2012

Dough Map School Project

Having problems figuring out how to come up with a way to make a good map for your kid and his/her project? Here is a solution. The dough map! After knowing exactly what state you will make, then get a piece of wood or a piece of cardboard. Then draw your state on the piece. Then get some flour and spread it on the piece. (not too much though) Kinda like making a pizza. :)

Now, you need to get a mixing bowl and add 2 cups of salt, 2 cups of flour, and add water to needed thickness for a doughy texture. Then lay the dough out of the piece of cardboard/wood and mold to fit your state. Place in the oven for 2 hours at 150 degrees. Once you take it out, you can paint the colors of land or waters. Tada, there you have an easy dough map project. Now if you need to label and areas of the map; just get some tooth picks or you can even cut Q-tips as sticks to represent your cities/landmarks...etc.

You can cut paper and label the cities/landmarks and tape it or superglue it to your sticks. Your map will be the best of the class. Now don't forget before you put the dough in the oven...if you have hills or mountains you need to mold those on there as well. Good luck!
