Bubbles has been very interested in all the projects I’ve been working on for the Christmas in July series and she has wanted to lend a hand in most of them. Not all of them lend themselves well to her age group, but today I have a fun and easy craft that you and your kiddos can do together. You may want to do the mixing part yourself, but once the salt dough ornaments are done, the kids can have fun painting and personalizing them.
This recipe is great because you can use it to make pretty much anything. We used cookie cutters to cut out holiday shapes; some of them we painted, some we’ll leave “natural”. You can also press the kids’ hands or fingerprints in them to make milestone ornaments (which make great, inexpensive gifts for the grandparents, too).
