Salt Dough Christmas Decorations

Laura was at home yesterday as her school was a polling station and I was surprised to find that having both girls here meant less intervention from me, not more - they played together so nicely! And for so long! I got lots of work done.

I did have one activity planned though. In the morning I made up some salt dough (half a cup of salt, half a cup of water, a cup of flour) and the girls rolled it out and cut out shapes. Over lunchtime I dried them out in the oven, then the girls painted them. An hour or two later and it was time for glitter glue and sequins. Now I just need to put some yarn loops on them and they are ready for the Christmas tree!


  1. They are gorgeous! Come and link them up at the tree decoration post on my blog to join the blog hop!

  2. These look lovely. I remember doing them when my eldest boy was young, but I haven't tried them in a long time. Will try your recipe, thank you.
