Salt Dough Ornaments

How cute are these!!

We know you’re looking for something fun to do with the kids during Christmas break. These salt dough ornaments are a great idea to keep kids young and old entertained.

This idea is an add on to our episode from the other day on fun things to do with your kids this month. If you haven’t heard it yet you can listen to it HERE

Combine 4 cups of flour

1 cup of table salt

1 & 1/12 cup water

I like to let the kids do this part, it is not a really sticky dough and it also can’t be over mixed. It is a really easy part of the process for them to help with.

Then roll the dough out, with a rolling pin, so it is about an 8th of an inch thick.

Use cookie cutters to achieve your desired shape, we used Christmas ones. Then use a tooth pick to make a hole in the top of the ornament. Pierce from both sides to ensure a good opening all the way through. 

Cook in the oven at 220 for 4 hours. Rotate the ornaments once an hour the achieve even cooking. I also like to check every once and awhile to make sure the hole hasn’t closed.

Once your salt dough ornaments are cooled you’ll want to paint them with acrylic paint.

Feel free to post pictures of your finished ornaments on our social pages! We would love to see them.

If you don’t already have a set of cookies cutters, here is the set we have
