Salt Dough

This is an old post I have found in my drafts

I wanted to try something crafty with Thomas and I heard a few people talking about doing salt dough with their little ones so I thought that I would give it a go with Thomas and see how it turned out.
Salt dough is such a quick and easy thing to make and a super cheap activity I can remember when I was younger my sister and I use to make this with our nan . It is made from items everybody has in their kitchen cupboards. 

I found a simple recipe for salt dough on the internet all you need is
 1 cup of water, 1 cup of salt and 2 cups of plain four 
and then use your hands to make it in to a dough. 
If you feel it's too watery then just add more flour. 

Now I wanted to try to make Santa christmas decorations using Thomas's hand print but we couldn't quite get them right and when we did and put them in the oven I don't know what happened but I only left them in the oven on the lowest setting as it said on the internet for about 25 minutes before I checked on them and they had risen! Complete fail.

The only one that survived the oven was this Thomas's hand print inside mine :)

Trying to get a 6 month old to cooperate with salt dough is pretty difficult all Thomas was to do is clench his hands up and mush the dough between his fingers the little tinker! I am looking forward to when he is a bit older and we can have another go. Perhaps next time they wont rise in the oven.
