Directions:
Mix the salt and flour and slowly add very small amounts of water to make a workable "dough."

Add food coloring to dough, as needed to form the various parts of the map.

Spread and shape the "dough" into the shape of the state, country, or object being formed. Use toothpicks with paper flags attached to them to label the various sections of the salt map.

Keep hands wet when working with the "dough." You can also use a fork to create ridges (for farmland, for example).
