Salt Dough

I made a batch of Salt Dough a few days before we wanted to paint them.
Its easy to make just add 1 1/2 Cups of Plain flour, 1/2 Cup Salt, 1 Tbs of Oil and 2/3 Cup of Water in a bowl. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead into a smooth ball. Then roll it out and cut your pretty shapes out.
Bake at 120 degrees for 2hrs. 
(Make sure you put holes in the shapes before baking, a straw makes perfect holes.)
You could also do hand or foot prints. I didn't as I made it before with out any kids 'helping', I saved them for a day when I needed an activity up my sleeve and gave them to Poppy to paint until her heart content.
