I’m over at momtastic today sharing one of the best Christmas crafts ever. It takes only 3 ingredients which I can practically guarantee are already in your pantry (salt, flour, and water), it’s appealing to kids of all ages, and it can be extended into an activity that lasts practically all day. Plus the end product is a perfect grandparent gift.
Salt dough ornaments are essentially three favorite kid activities rolled into one. First there’s cooking, the little ones get to pour and stir to their hearts content. Next comes the kneading, rolling, and cookie cutters – basically play dough play. Finally, once the kids have napped and the ornaments have dried out in the oven, it’s time to paint!
