Salt Dough Ornaments

I decided to make salt dough ornaments with the kids the other day. The recipe I used was:

2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water
Mix flour and salt together and add water
Mix until doughy then knead until it is smooth (about 10 min.)
If it is too sticky add more flour or if it is too crumbly add more water
Roll out flat to the thickness you want your ornaments to be
Use cookie cutters or whatever you have on hand to make shapes
Bake at 250 degrees- it can take 20-30 min up to a couple hours to bake depending on the thickness.

I used some funky homemade cookie cutters cause I don't have any.

Next time I think I will use a glass to make better circles.

Some of the finished product:

P's hand print and brother's fingerprints.

These don't look nearly as pretty as others I have seen on the Internet, so I think I need to try again.

I put the dough we didn't use in a baggie in the fridge. I think I need to try again.  ; )
