Salt dough has become a Christmas and Easter tradition around here. The boys love creating decorations for the playroom at this time of the year. \n\n \n\nOur recipe is very easy and hasn’t failed us yet. \n \n1 cup of table salt (cooking salt will work but makes a rougher dough)\n2 cups plain flour\n1 cup of water\n \nAdd salt and flour to the bowl and mix well. \n Add water and mix until dough holds together.\nTransfer the dough to a floured surface and kneed until smooth. \n \nThe dough is then ready to be rolled and cut into shapes. \n \nBake salt dough creations in the oven at 180oc for approximately one hour. \nThe cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of the dough and the size of the shapes. \n \nOnce the dough is cooked it can be painted. If you want to keep the salt dough for a few years, seal the painting with Mod Podge. \n \nTo make hanging decorations, use a straw to punch out a hole before baking the shapes.\n\n\n\nHave you tried making salt dough before?
