December is nearly here!

Yay!

The Christmas tree is almost ready to be brought down from the loft and this year we will have our work cut out convincing Izzy that it is not a shiny toy to pull down every two minutes!

In readiness of our glittery green addition, I think that it’s time we created some new decorations to hang from our tree…

What You’ll Need

  • 1/2 Cup Salt
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • Rolling pin
  • Cutters
  • Measuring cups

I love salt dough – it’s so versatile! You can leave it plain, paint it, glitter it, or even stamp it – whatever you like!

I had pre-measured the ingredients so that Boo was able to mix his own dough.

“Eurgh sticky Mummy!”

We eventually got the dough to the right consistency – mouldable but not wet and sticky.

Boo had fun rolling the dough and playing with the cutters.  I love that he is learning so many new things every single day that we are exploring and creating.

We got our decorations all cut out and then placed them onto a baking sheet.

I used a drinking straw to create a hole in each of them for our hanging string and then popped them into the oven to bake at 100 degrees centigrade for about an hour.

Tomorrow we decorate!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Activity Time: 15 minutes

Day #65 DONE! 35 to go!
