Salt Dough Ornaments

We made these about 2 years ago when violet was only 7 weeks old!
I felt like i had to do an update of the children's hand prints for memory purposes as well as gifts for family this year!

They are so so simple you will need:

2 cups of plain cheap flour
1 cup table salt
1 cup water

Add two cups of flour to your bowl

Add 1 cup of salt

And a cup of cold water

Mix until combined.. If it feels abit sticky add a little more flour

Knead your dough for a few mins

Roll out on to a floured surface, you want it to be about a £1 thickness

Measure your childs hand and find appropriate cutters.

Once cut lay them onto a baking sheet

Get your child to firmly press their hand into the dough

Use a straw to make a hole in the dough for the ribbon

Bake in the preheated 130c oven for 30-40mins until hard.
I decorate mine with poster paints & glitter

Match them up with Ribbons and don't forget to write your childs name & age on the back.
