Again, we used 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of salt and half cup of water. It was coloured a light yellow.


I used an oval shaped dish to make the eggs. Then the kids printed their hands:

I added the date and ‘Easter’ with my alphabet dough stamps. Then, I couldn’t find our egg shaped cookie cutter, so I used a plastic cup and pressed it into an oval shape to make the photo frame hole.


It was bake at 70’C for around three hours. I turned it around(face down) to dry at the back overnight. Once dry, I thought the handprint looks a lot like a chicken, so I added some more features with markers. Obviously you don’t have to, you could leave it plain too!

I did see with another project that damp weather softened the frame so I would recommend spraying your salt dough project with a Clear Varnish to protect it.

Finally, a photo and string and all done! A lovely Easter keepsake! I bet granny would like these as a gift too!

    My ornament is still a little soft. I baked it as directed. I have already sprayed poly on it. Any suggestions?
