Salt Dough Recipe for Ornaments(perfect ornament gift for the grandparents)

Jump to recipe

Salt dough is one of my favorite dough recipes to make because you can save your art sculptures making this material the main ingredient for a lot of Christmas ornaments, dinosaur activities, and even learning the numbers and ABC’s.

Salt dough gets created and molded like playdough so it is really easy for the kids to use. When your desire sculpture is completed, all you need to do is put it in the oven and your sculpture is permanently hard and will last the test of time.
