Salt Dough Ornaments
1 C salt
4 C flour
2 C water
Adjust flour and water as needed to create cookie dough like consistency. Roll out and use holiday cookie cutters to create designs. Use straw or the likes to create hole for ornament string. Lay on plate and microwave for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes to harden. Decorate with glitter, markers, paints, stickers. Allow to dry. Thread with string and hang on Christmas tree.
****For those really ambitious crafters add food coloring to different segments of dough and you can sculpt your own designs.
This has been a fun tradition my mom used to do with us when we were little. This year we used alphabet cutters, stars, bears, flowers, and hearts. It was an interesting concoction. The girls LOVED it and I think Nate was having just as much fun!
