My niece wanted to get started on her Christmas things too so asked if she could paint something. HMMMMM........I got it! salt dough ornaments! She was tickled pink!
the recipe is simple. 2 c flour, 1 c salt, 1 c water. mix and knead till dough is smooth. roll, bake (we use microwave at 1 min intervals till hard but not burnt)
Here they are all baked and ready to go.She had fun rolling the dough and using the cookie cutters.
dont they look good enough to eat? she will have a ball painting them and then sealing them to preserve them for a while. I have some that I made in 1989! (er, I mean my Grandmother made them. I cant be that old! LOL)
