These salt dough ornaments are something that your child will love to make and to give. The dough is also great for just using like play-doh, too, if you aren't in the mood to go all the way with this activity. This recipe comes from PaintCutPaste, one of my favorite go-to blogs for crafty ideas.
4 cups flout
1 cup iodized salt
1.75 cups warm water
Mix and knead for 10 minutes
Roll out your dough on a floured surface.
Use cookie cutters to make shapes.
Use a straw to poke holes for your string.
Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour.
Let them cool on a wire rack for 12-24 hours.
When ready, use a water-based paint like tempera or acrylic to decorate.
I like to use glitter and stickers to make them look even fancier.
There is just something so special about a child's artistic touch, isn't there?
