Salt Dough Memories...

You normally see Salt Dough around at Christmas. People make all sorts of decorations for their trees and gifts for loved ones. 
This year I had a go when my mum came to stay with us; it was a bit of mother/daughter time.

I have NEVER made salt dough before, but I knew what I wanted to create.......Little Miss' hand print at 2 years old. So here goes.......

All you need is:-

1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup water

*Pre-heat oven to 150 degrees celsius 

*Mix the ingredients together to form a dough; I found it was best to just get my hands in the bowl rather than use a spoon. 

*Roll out the dough (I kept mine around 1/2 inch thick) 

*Next I placed Little Miss' hand onto the dough to create her hand print,

*Carefully place on a baking tray and pop in the oven for around 3 hours. Keep an eye on it, the time varies depending on the thickness of your dough. You'll know when its done, because it will be set hard :)

*Leave to cool and decorate if you wish.

This is a lovely way to capture those memories of our little ones growing up, and they last forever!
