I hadn't made salt dough ornaments since I was a kid but this year we were invited to make some with our neighbors. This is the first Christmas that Jacob and I are eating wheat free, so making these ornaments was a fun way for us to use all of our Christmas cookie cutters. We normally have a yearly tradition of making Christmas cookies but I haven't found a good wheat/gluten free cookie dough recipe, so our tradition had to be modified a bit. I think the ornaments turned out great and they were really easy to make thanks to the microwavable salt dough recipe from allfreecrafts.com. We used acrylic paints to decorate them.
Kids Love Learning is a place for me to share my favorite books, activities, crafts, games, toys, curriculum, and websites. My goal is to help parents find resources which nurture a love of learning in their children. I also include posts about homeschooling, adoption, helping children with special needs, natural help for ADHD, and more.
