Ho ho ho handprints

Santa Claus is coming to our tree!

Last year I made a Christmas ornament that was simple but so cute and something I will cherish forever. This year I will be doing the same craft with M and F to once again make memories and have cute Christmas decorations.

The decoration is a handprint Santa ornament made from salt dough. Easy, fun and so cute.

To so this I coloured in Santa's hat, face and the background with with Sharpie pens which meant there was next to no mess and then used poster paint to make his beard and bauble on his hat white.

I think we will be making many more salt dough memories in the coming years as it is so cheap and easy to make.

How to make salt dough:

2 cups plain flour

1 salt

1 cup water

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until you have a dough. We then rolled the dough to the desired thickness (probably about half a centimetre) before trying to coax Molly into making a handprint (not as easy as you might think).

Once I had a couple of prints I put them in the oven for 3 hours at 100 degrees.

Because it was salty we made sure to wash Molly’s hands straight away to ensure she didn’t eat any.
