Salt water dough ornaments

22 Nov



I remember making these when I was in the third grade living in Saudi Arabia. We made little arab men. Weird. BUT I had always wanted to try it again and make Christmas ornaments. Finally did it. It’s so easy too.

2 cups flour

1 cup salt

1 cup water

mix and roll out. So easy. Then bake in a NONGREASED cookie sheet for two hours at 250 degrees.

We made a playdate out of it and had some kids over. We rolled out the dough, and had the kids choose their shapes. Each kid make a batch. Then they played while it cooked for two hours, ate lunch and then painted. We even added gloss to them with clear acrylic coating gloss in a can. I sprayed both sides to make sure ants were not going to be attracted to them. Here in Hawaii Ants like it all!

Julie and her girls came over and Kadin had Lennox come help too. The kids had lots of fun…but in the end it was more playing and less crafting. Thats okay though because Julie and I had fun fixing them up and enjoying our time together.
