Baking is an activity that can be done for many reasons. This can include baking items for any charities and for meals. Common baked goods often include bread and cookies. If you are looking for a project to do with kids, then creating salt dough ornaments is a great option. The best time to do this is on any days that are rainy or when the kids need to be distracted.

Creating various types of salt dough ornaments is a great activity to do around the holidays, but can be adapted for a variety of occasions. One aspect to keep in mind about this type of project is the final product will not be safe to eat. However, you can make decorations to use for Halloween and to decorate a Christmas tree. The only thing that young kids will not be able to do is the actual baking of the dough. However, they will be able to shape an ornament and even decorate it in a variety of ways.

The best thing to keep in mind about salt dough ornaments is they can have many uses. They can be used as a basic decoration or packaged and wrapped as a gift for friends, family, teachers, and co-workers. You will first need to obtain the necessary materials and ingredients to complete the project.

A simple dough will require you to use some flour, salt, and water. You will also need various cookie cutter shapes, glitter, ribbon, and some cooking utensils. This will include a rolling pin and cookie sheet. You will also need a straw to make a hole to attach string to hang the ornament.

Preparing the dough is a fun activity for everyone, and great way to teach kids about the process of baking. You can have them mix all the ingredients together and show them how to use a rolling pin. The shapes used for an ornament will depend on the cookie cutter shapes that are available.

One thing to keep in mind is the dough needs to be preserved. This can be done applying an acrylic spray or polyurethane. Applying a sealer to the finished product should be done by an adult.
