January and February are NOT my favourite months in the Great White North. If it weren't for viruses and illnesses I might be singing a different tune...maybe we'd get outside and enjoy the cold instead of staying inside, loathing a cold!
So, we have to find things to keep us busy! Sophia and I made Salt Dough Beads! This was a great project since she was home for a few days were were able to work on them over many days. They were super easy.
Store your salt dough in a air tight container and you will be able to use it for days.
Bake your creations at 200 F until they are dry. The amount of time needed to bake your creations depend on size and thickness; thin flat ornaments may only take 45-60 minutes, thicker creations can take 2-3 hours or more.
You can paint your creations with acrylic paints and seal with varnish or polyurethane spray.
You can let your salt dough creations air dry.
