Day 2: Salt Dough Ornaments

Today the Advent Calendar said to make salt dough ornaments! We made them, but didn't decorate them yet. We got a late start and kids got tired. So I'll update when the decorate them :)
"I have the salt!!"
ok, buddy but we need more than just salt. It takes:
1/2C salt
1/2C water
1C flour

Mix it all up to create your dough (ends up feeling like playdoh)
Create your shapes (don't forget to poke holes before baking if you want to use these as ornaments)

"It's so squishy!"

then you bake @ 250 for 2 hours for a full cookie sheet. If you have less, you may need to alter this. The point is to dry them out completely. You may choice to let set out overnight and not bake them! Either way, have fun!

Skylar tried to make another batch later on by herself.. ended up very gloopy, haha. No idea where she went wrong :)
