Keeping the kids entertained

with salt dough





and help from Aunty Karen




and baths after painting.....






Salt Dough


4 cups of flour

1 cup salt

2 cups water


Put everything in bowl and stir together, mixture should be firm but not sticky,

add more flour if it is.

Pop in fridge for an hour, then play :)

We rolled out and used cookie cutters but you can make 3d shapes.

Put into oven on low (120) and cook for a couple of hours until hard.

Paint, but don't paint yourself or try to eat it!!

Then once dry paint with varnish to keep it from rotting away.
