Ive always loved making salt dough and our own play dough, Harry loves rolling it and using the cutters to shape it.
I saw lots of lovely Christmas salt dough ideas on pinterest and last week we made some. Yes last week, I'm just blogging about it as i stupidly didn't bake them, i just left them to air dry (because last time i baked some they turned orange!) So i left them out and 6days later they were dry enough!!
The recipe i use is so simple, i use one of Harry's tea cups and fill it with flour, let him tip it into the mixing bowl, then add a half filled cup of salt and then a full cup of water, then mix. I add extra flour or water depending on how its going (i hate measuring!) you can then add food colouring or glitter but i like to keep ours plain especially as i was painting them.

Last night i painted some of them:-
Today we made some more so Harry can paint them. I baked these for 3hrs on gas mark one and luckily they didn't turn orange, Harry will get to paint them and glitter them tomorrow :)
