Salt Dough Christmas hearts


Salt Dough Christmas hearts I found this great recipe on another blog and adapted it to what we needed. This is a perfect activity for young children, older children and even for us mums. 20131209-091726.jpg

It's just like working with play dough but you can keep your creations for decorating.
Ingredients... 2 Cups Plain Flour 1 Cup Salt 1 Cup Water20131205-172457.jpg Florence really enjoyed measuring out all the ingredients, it's the first time I have let her have the free reign with salt. Optional: food colouring - We added pink food colouring You can even press buttons, diamonds etc anything hard into the dough before baking.
Method... 1. Place the flour, salt and water in a large mixing bowl and mix to form a dough. Give it a little knead on the bench to pull altogether and make it smooth. 20131205-172522.jpg 2. Place between 2 sheets of baking paper and roll out until approx 3 mm thick. 20131205-172531.jpg 3. Use cookie cutters to make your desired shapes and using a skewer make a hole at the top. 20131205-172540.jpg 4. Place on a lined baking tray and bake in a 150 degree Celcius oven for 2-3 hours. 20131205-172551.jpg 5. Once they have cooled you can paint and decorate with glitter. I used glitter nail polish as it is a lot cleaner and gives them a nice shine. 6. Add some ribbon and you have beautiful handmade decorations or gifts to give to teachers and family. I have used ours for Christmas tree decorations and also to jazz up some special gifts. And with any left over dough (before it goes in the oven) you can put it in a jar for a gift or a treat for your little one for helping.

Florence and I had great fun making these little decorations, give it a go... if anything it is a lovely activity if you feel too cold to go out!

Play dough fun


Play dough fun - With rainy days suddenly making an appearance I've decided I need to be a bit more inventive in the afternoons. Post-nap Oliver wants to do something outdoors and energetic but mummy is getting a bit tired now with only 7 weeks to go, so I'm having to think of fun things to keep him entertained. 20130919-154110.jpg We decided to give the play dough another try and I'm delighted to say that this time Oliver loved it, almost as much as mummy! We had about 30/45 minutes fun with the play dough but have to say he enjoyed the washing-up at the end just as much! I moved a chair over to the sink, rolled up his sleeves & let him help me wash-up the play dough accessories, yes the OCD cleaning is rife at the moment! Thank you Mum for the washing-up idea, the old ones are the best!

20130919-154216.jpg Daisy has a great recipe for homemade play dough if you fancy giving it a try here is the link 'homemade play dough' , I cheated and bought a large box of mixed colours & just use a couple of colours at a time. When the play dough gets too messy or crispy I just open a new one.

20130919-154340.jpg My sister kindly gave me a huge box of play dough toys so I didn't have to buy anything & as you can see we had a great time with the dinosaurs ROAAAAAR! Michelle X
