My very least favorite part of winter is how early it gets dark outside!! Gone are our evening walks to the park and hello to more time in the house. It can really make a person feel cooped up and it's easy for a toddler to get bored and antsy. So I decided it would help to have a few activities. As I was thinking of things to include doing with our advent calendar ornaments seemed perfect. Enter ... salt dough ornaments.
I used the recipe from Mommypotamus which simply consists of flour, salt and water. It comes together quickly and easily and is fun for the little ones in your life.
I ended up giving Emersyn her own bowl with flour and water in it to stir and play with and she happily made a giant mess :) We made the dough and baked them one day and then completed them the next day with glittery paint. Emy's favorite part!
Happy toddler Christmas crafting!!
