{Salt Dough Hands}

The girls and I made these cutie patootie Salt Dough Hands.
I just love them!!
Such a super easy craft with lasting memories of how little big the girls are.
 Here's what we used:
~4 Cups Flour
~1 Cup Salt
~1 1/2 Cups warm water

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
2. Mix flour and salt well. Gradually add water, stirring with a large spoon. Finish mixing with hands. Knead until soft and pliable.
3. Roll out on floured surface about 1/8 inch thick. Have kiddo make a firm mold of their hand. Place on cookie sheets. With the end of a straw, make a hole in the top of the ornament for threading ribbon. Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) until hard, about 1 hour.
4. Spray paint color of choice to preserve.
