I decided that each weekend, we are going to do a family craft! Well, two actually because I would prefer Ben could participate and I don’t want Bug to get bored.
This week we made paper mache masks with Bug and a handprint plaque with Benjamin. Bug already ruined her mask but it was a lizard man.
This is our plaque. It has Jeremy and I’s handprints with Ben’s in the middle. This will hang in Ben’s room. I used salt dough to make it.
1 cup salt
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup luke warm water
1. In a large bowl mix salt and flour.
2. Gradually stir in water. Mix well until it forms a doughy consistency.
3. With your hands form a ball with your dough and kneed it for at least 5 minutes. The longer you kneed your dough the smoother it will be.
