Who says kitchen play always has to be about making something to eat?
Our children rarely object to any opportunity to mess about in our kitchen. When it was suggested that we make some easy salt dough and create a few Christmas keepsake decorations for our tree this year, our kids were super-eager!
Remember the joy of creating with clay during your own primary school years? Well, salt dough is an easy to make and shape alternative that you can take care of in your own home. Thankfully, salt dough is less messy than actual clay and available to you whenever you wish. Just like clay, salt dough can be molded readily and sets hard after baking or air-drying. When the finished pieces are painted and decorated in the final stage, the results can be truly impressive and rewarding.
