Craft for a winter day...

How easy is salt dough? I completely forgot about this fun recipe until I pulled out a book from my little sister. Kylie had a bunch of designs picked out and forgive me for not taking an end pic, but know they ended up pretty cute. Here is what you need.
  • 1 c salt
  • 1 c water
  • 2 c flour
Dissolve the salt in the water and then add the flour. Knead the dough..
The roll it out...
And make some fun little objects. Kylie really wanted to make "cookies and sticky buns" so after they were cooked at 200 for 3 hours we painted them to look like them. We used foil to help hold the shape of the cup. Unfortunately, the snake was eaten Cooper shortly after being painted.
These were really fun to make and if I hadn't run out of salt we would have made a lot more. In the book they even made some pieces of jewelry. Anyways..have fun salt doughing it!

On another note, I made my dad's famous sticky buns for the first time! Kylie inspired me to make them after having made some pretend ones earlier in the day. They turned out deliciously yummy and I cannot wait to share them with the fam in the morning. On second thought, maybe I will just enjoy them myself tonight;o) Just kidding!
