Great craft for a Cinderella party.
4 cups of flour
1 cup of salt
1-1/2 cups of hot water
Decorations – glitter, paint, beads, etc.
1. This recipe is enough to make quite a lot of cookie cutter shapes, depending on the size of them. You will also need paint in any colors and any decorations, pom poms, glitter, beads, colored pasta beads etc.
2. Use cookie cutters to cut a variety of shapes, like dinos, snowmen, stars, they sell every shape imaginable now, including all animal shapes. Once the child uses their cookie cutters to make their door hanger/ornament. Then use a toothpick to make a hole for hanging, being sure to make the hole a little larger than you will want as they tend to close when baking and you want to be able to put a ribbon through it to loop and tie so they can hang their new dough door hanger/ornament.
3. Using a microwave-safe plate (not paper or cardboard), microwave a plate of their cookie cutter dough shapes for 1 minute each time, rebaking 1 minute each time as you check on them after each minute so see their hardness.
Keep a close eye on the microwave as the ornaments bake. Let dough shapes cool completely before decorating. They can paint them, decorate with glue and decorations that you put out for them, along with music, food and drinks of course, then cut a length of satin ribbon and put through the hole you put at the top of the cookie cutter dough shape, loop and tie off…they have a very cool party favor to take home, and hang in their house.
