Make Salt Dough Ornaments
Edited by Rebecca M., Robbi, Lynn, Inukshuk
The holidays are a wonderful time to let kids get involved in crafting and cooking. Kids love to be a part of the holiday activities, and letting them make their very own ornament is a great way to let them help with the decorations. Salt dough ornaments are one of the most kid friendly crafts that you will find. You simply mix up the dough and roll it out. Kids can create their own designs or use cookie cutters to create their decorations. They can then be painted, colored with non-toxic markers or decorated in any way imaginable. This is a craft that is just as fun for adults as it is for kids, and you get handmade ornaments that you will cherish for years to come.

To seal your ornaments after painting, use spray varnish. Since there is no set way to decorate these keepsakes, use your imagination. Try some glitter over wet paint to add a bit of sparkle, or even use a few drops of food coloring to tint the dough before you cut it out. The main idea is to simply have fun with them.
