Over the last couple of days, Rorykins and I have been making a few little Easter crafts to give to his friends. We started with these lovely wooden eggs and printed a personalised initial on it. Then we made a sweet little bag for it to go in by using these muslin drawstring pouches and decorating them with an easter egg (I drew the egg, Rory coloured it in). We made a little card which Rory coloured and we put these easter stickers on, then made these salt dough tags which we imprinted with initials for a finishing touch. I think they look rather sweet and all of the children seemed to love them, most importantly, Rory loved making them.
How to make salt dough eggs
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup water
Stir together all three ingredients until a dough forms. Kneading the dough a couple times can help make it smoother.
Roll it out (I rolled mine to 1/4 inch thick) and cut out desired shapes. I then printed an initial on it.
Place the cut-outs on the parchment-covered baking sheets. Remember to make a hole so you can hang the ornaments — a straw works perfectly!
Bake at 250F for 2 hours.
