salt dough ornaments

Pin It
we made saLT doUGh ornaments!!!  i got this recipe from the amazing Laura over at Art for Little Hands in her Salt Dough post. {sorry. links no longer available} 


stirring the thick mix was fun...but a bit hard


we used many tools to play and create
((even a toy steamroller!))


the baking took a while...i had to keep standing the snowmen back up


the painting was fun!  we used tempera paint. 
then a coat of mod podge to add some shine.
have you ever made your own salt dough or playdough?

What fun! I always wanted to make salt dough ornaments when I was a kid. I never got to though. Your son is a lucky boy!

We have tried to make salt dough ornaments every year since the kids were small, but haven 't done it recently! I have even went into the classroom and done them as a group activity with the entire room a few years back. Love the whole process and that it is very inexpensive and only the imagination can hold you back on what you can make! Thanks for sharing Andie!

I love this idea. I have been looking for something fun to do with my kids and niece who will be coming to visit for Christmas and this will be perfect. I am a new FB fan visiting from Made by Little Hands. Vicky from Mess For Less

This is such a great activity to do with kids. I will have to get some supplies and do it over our Christmas break.
