Handmade Ornaments

What a fun thing to do with your kids! This year I made handmade ornaments with my kids! They are still very young, but we tried! Use cookie cutters or even smash your kids hands into them! Mix the flour, salt and water, shape and bake! That's it!

Here is a recipe to use....

4 Cups Flour
1 Cup Salt
1 1/2 cups warm water

(Makes about 15 ornaments, depending on the size)

Mix and spread out on floured surface about 1/8" thick or however thick you want! Use a toothpick, or a straw (what I used) to make holes for yarn to hang onto the tree!

Bake at 325 degrees until hard. (About 1 hour)

Keep it as is, paint it, decorate it however you want!
