As we prepared all of February for Valentine's Day there was something that I definitely wanted to attempt with the kids! We decided to attack Salt Dough Jewelry to give away! This was definitely fun for everyone involved. Take the ingredients below and mix it all together in 1 bowl. I like to set it all out in measuring cups and let them put it in and follow the recipe themselves.
Roll out all the dough and after that I let them play with it so for as long as they wanted, just like play dough! This helped smooth it out and turned this simple project into something that lasted much longer.
The Littles love play dough and this was even more fun, since they knew it was going to be made into something else afterwards!
Now it was time to shape them! We made jumbo buttons in round and heart shapes, for lacing fun, then we made plain hearts and circles for the jewelry we would be making. This part was fun, because they loved taking the cookie cutters and toothpicks to the dough.
Now they are ready for baking!
The painting process made this a 3-in-1 project!
We added glitter to the paint and our necklaces were shimmery!
