ROCKLAND, Maine ––  Have you always wanted to try salt dough but don’t have the time or the recipe? Work with this simple and easy to work with dough made from just salt water and flour to create fun ornaments or holiday figurines at the Coastal Children’s Museum. Visitors will be invited to make ornaments or little Christmas figurines out of the salt dough whipped up by Outreach and Program Coordinator for the museum Megan Rogers 1-2 p.m. Dec. 7.  The salt dough can be hardened using the children’s museum’s microwave, so children and their families can decorate their creations as well- no hour long bakes in the oven anymore! The recipe will be made available for families to continue the fun at home.

This workshop is free for museum members and included in the price of admission. Signing your child helps in dough batch preparation. Email or call 596-0300. Located at 75 Mechanic St. in Rockland, the Coastal Children’s Museum is  dedicated to providing children aged 2-9 an opportunity to explore, discover and learn through play about the natural world, the arts and sciences and the diversity of Maine’s coast.
