    skyeblu's Note:

    My four-year old had great fun with this ornament recipe this holiday season; in fact, we had to make several batches. The ornaments are very smooth, perfect for painting. I had the most success when I halved the recipe and didn't leave it too long to cool, just long enough to handle. While it made perfect smaller ornaments, I had some cracking as they dried when I used the dough to make larger handprint ornaments.

      I'm giving it a 4 because I had alot of trouble with breakage as the ornaments dried. But this was a fun Saturday project for DD (3) and I and we had fun painting them also. This is good for small ornaments or ornaments that do not have alot of detail, not for ornaments that are more than about 3 inches high.

      We used to make these when we were little, but I couldnt remember the exact measurements. Thanks for posting! I remember one year we got crafty and made candy canes by dying some of the dough red and rolling it out like a snake, then twisting with the regular dough to make the candy cane effect, then shape like a cane! It seems like they took a little longer to harden than the regular cut out ornaments. Thanks again for the measurements!
