This is dough you can use to make Christmas ornaments

Top Review by Tinkerbell

So fun! I made this with my toddler yesterday and aside from her insisting on taking a bite of an unpainted salt cookie, all went well. :) The dough is so easy to work with & she was able to roll & cut her own. I baked the shapes as directed and then we painted with Delta Ceramacoat acrylic paints. Thanks for a great activity, Eastomgm! I'll make this again near Christmastime so she can make ornaments for the family. Made & enjoyed for Spring 2010 Pick A Chef. You've been adopted! :)
