Art with Friends

Susan and her boys came over to play today. I made some salt dough to put hand prints in. First I had issues with the dough wanting to stick together, so I added a bit more water. Then I was supposed to kneed it for 15-20 minutes... it was too stiff for that to happen after adding the water, so we ended up just rolling it out and cutting circles for little hands to make impressions. My kid wouldn't press his hand into the dough, Susan's kids were a little more cooperative. We baked the dough for about 25 minutes, though it probably could have used another 10-15 more. We needed time for the "hand-prints" to cool before painting, though, so they came out a tad early.    The boys had a great time painting. It ended up being a fun project and will make for some great gifts!

The boys very contentedly painting.
This is how we knew Tanner was done..Oh and he got down from the table and walked away!
