I love playing with salt dough. There are so many fun things you can make with it. I’ve been able to manage simple Christmas ornaments and things like that. Its easy to find recipes on the internet, including this one: http://www.artsncrafts-ideas.com/salt-dough-recipe.php
An old friend of mine made this project as a baby shower gift for my daughter, now 12. I am still amazed at the artistry of this project.
