Stampin'Up! Independent Demonstrator since 2003

A sweet thing to bake, while talking to your children about it’s meaning; perhaps in place of your usual biscuits..? Easy to make with normal, sweetened bread dough :)

Salt dough nativity fun

This is pretty cute, and a fun craft to make and paint! It can be stuck on the fridge, or in your child’s room, or converted into a Christmas tree ornament, just add string while still soft! The one below can be bought on Etsy, but is also fun and simple to make yourself:

Quick Salt Dough Recipe:

1/2 cup salt

1/2 cup water

1 cup flour

Instructions:

Add the salt and flour together in a bowl, and add the water in a bit at a time, mixing altogether. The dough is good when it’s dryish but not sticky. If sticky, add a bit more flour. Knead the dough, roll out and cut out your shapes. Dry your nativity characters in a low heat oven for 3 hours, or pop them in the microwave for 3 minutes, and then 20 seconds at a time thereafter until perfect. Once cooled, paint them :)
