salt dough Christmas trees

Salt dough recipe

2 cups flour

1 cup salt

1 cup water.

Mix together to form a dough. ( I added green food colouring to the dough – but I think it then took longer to dry so I won’t add it next time!)

Roll out and use a cookie cutter to make Christmas tree shapes. If you want to make hanging decorations make a hole for the thread now with a skewer.

Dry – either in a low over for three hours; air dry for a couple of days of dry in the microwave for a couple of minutes.

Decorate with paint, felt tips, glitter once the dough is dry. You could paint the trees with green acrylic paint yourself and then the trees are green and ready for the children to decorate.
