Looking for a fun little craft to do with your kiddos this Christmastime?
We found the perfect activity–that makes a fabulous keepsake too. Or, a sweet homemade gift your kids can make for family and friends. It is so easy (and cheap–I LOVE cheap). Even little kids will have fun.
~ 1/2 cup salt
~ 1 cup flour
~ 1/2 cup water
~ cookie cutters
~ rolling pin
~ glitter glue
(we doubled the measurements because we have a few kids)
How to prepare:
~ Preheat oven to 250 degrees (F)
~ Mix together salt, flour and water until a dough is formed.
~ Knead dough until it is elastic and smooth. If the dough is too sticky, add a little flour.
*** You don’t want the dough too dry–it will crack when baked.
~ Roll out on a flat surface–about 1/4 ” thick.
~ Use cookie cutters and let your kids have fun cutting out different shapes.
~ Make sure you punch a small hole in the top for the ribbon.
~ Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for about two hours.
~ Allow to cool completely.
~ When paint is dry, use glitter glue to add a sparkly glitter coat. We also added some sequins for some extra sparkliness (surely that must be a word?).
Your kids will LOVE their homemade ornaments. We dated ours at the back so that we can keep them forever.
An easy way to make some wonderful family memories with your angels this season.
