Ingredients & Materials
- 1 cup salt
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup water
- acrylic paint (I used tempera since all kids were painting)
- paint brushes
- rolling pin
- Halloween cookie cutters
Preheat oven to 250. Mix salt, flour, and water in a bowl…
…until a soft dough forms
On a floured surface, knead until smooth (do not add too much flour as this will cause the dough to crack) and roll out dough with a rolling pin…
…about 1/4″-1/2″ thick.
Cut out shapes with cookie cutters. Use toothpicks to draw lines or texture on cut-outs, and also to do holes for hanging, before baking. Bake for 2 hours. Let sit at least 4 hours, or better yet, overnight.
And paint your little heart out!
ps. Acrylic paint will give your “ornaments” a more professional look, but if you’re working with a 2, 4, and 5 year old, I strongly suggest using washable tempera. Just sayin’!
