My family is the MOST important part of my life and my world absolutely revolves around it...and that is completely okay with me!
I love spending quality time learning and growing with my kids.

Salt Dough Ornaments
This year the kids have an artificial tree of their own (oh so spoiled I know...but I bought it 2nd hand for $20) to hang all of their many many holiday crafts on. To start the season off we did salt dough ornaments on Wednesday.
They are fairly simple. To start you need:
2 cups of flour
2/3 cup salt
3/4 cup of water
Combine flour and salt in large bowl. Slowly stir in water until it forms a ball. Turn out on to a lightly floured surface and knead for 2-3mins.
Then roll out and cut shapes with cookie cutters.
Don't forget to punch holes for ribbon (to hang)
.Bake for 30mins at 300*F...Cool then paint.
Then I seal mine with clear acrylic sealer spray (do this outside or in a well ventilated area because I gagged my family out this year....ooops)
Usually I use christmas wrapping ribbon to hang these on the tree, but because I used the funnel to make my holes this year the kids were able to slide the ornaments right onto the branches of their tree.
