Tomb Salt Dough Craft



Tomb Salt Dough



  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Salt
  • 3/4 Cup Cold Water
  • White Styrofoam Bowls
  • Scissors
  • 2 Toothpicks

Mix up ingredients and kneed with your hands. To make this tomb that you see in the picture I only used one heaping handful of dough that will fit in my fist. With plenty of dough left over.Use this fun craft to go along with our Easter Lesson.




 First add your 2 cups of flour.






Next add your 1/2 cup of Salt.





 Next add your 3/4 cup of cold water.







 This is what the dough should look like after you mix it up real good.







 Now take your white Styrofoam bowl and turn it upside down.






 Okay this is the bowl upside down. :)







 Take a rolling pin and roll your handful of dough out.





 Spread your dough over the bowl now.






 Make yourself a little round door and stick it on the tomb.






 Grab your scissors and cut a hole for the door.





 Get yourself 2 toothpicks so you can pick your teeth... lol okay not really.






Stick 1 toothpick in the tomb and go through the styrofoam a little.





  Cover your toothpick with some dough.





 Add your 2nd toothpick sideways into the dough.





Now this is your finished tomb. Let the kids at church make these and take home with them. Just let them air dry for a couple of days, and they will get hard. This will be fun for children's church when teaching on Easter.

If you do this at home with your kids then you can actually put this in the oven for a couple of hours on low heat. Make sure you put this on a GLASS BOWL cause the plastic will melt!! I am sure you knew that already though, huh?
Combine this craft with our Easter Lesson that has coloring pages, mazes, recipes, crafts and more to go with it.

  1. I recommend using this for a children's church service with the kids and have them make these during class. This will be a wonderful craft for them to take home. Not to mention a very memorable one. Just have them mix the dough themselves and construct it. Loads of fun!
