Salt dough is so much fun! There are literally 1000′s of things you can make with this dough. Great idea for saving your kids’ art work, making homemade gifts, decorations and so much more. We chose to use cookie cutters and make some fun shapes. Get creative! There are no rules.
To make the handprints roll dough out into the desired shape. (Be sure counter is floured) Flour hand and press firmly into the middle of the dough. BAM! You have a your child’s handprint forever. So cute and easy!
We used Halloween cookie cutters to make the ghost shape. We made small holes in the top so they can be hung. Place shaped dough onto a cookie sheet, giving some room for expansion.
Bake at 275 for up to 2 hours depending on the thickness of your dough shapes. The pumpkins had to bake for about 3 hours. Paint using any type of paint. We have an overabundance of nail polish, so that’s what we chose to use. I’m all for using your resources.
We put a little bit of fishing line through the small hole we made and hung them on a bush in the front of our house. Looks great! Be sure to send me your pictures! I would love to see them!!
