Inspiration for Super Easy Salt Dough Ornaments Some of the most memorable ornaments on our family Christmas Tree from when I was growing up are the salt dough ornaments my mom made with one of her friends before I was born. She always said they were super easy to make. I’ve always thought about making them myself and this year I decided to go for it. After all, hers have certainly lasted the test of time… 38ish years later (pictured here on white Christmas tree). I was slightly intimidated about making these myself. My sugar cookie attempts have never seemed

Valentine’s Day is such a fun holiday — one that’s filled with lots of sweets and love! During this time of year, I always try to make a festive craft with my little one that we can display around the house and admire!

My kids and I decided to make our own Christmas ornaments this year. We haven’t done this before, and I really wanted to start doing things that I’ll be able to keep and look at years from now. You, too, can do the same with salt dough ornaments! All you’ll need is flour, salt, water, a rolling pin, and cookie cutters.

Valentine’s Day is such a fun holiday for children.

But have you ever paused to realize that this holiday, so much more than others, revolves around words and sugar? Neither are exactly applicable to babies and toddlers. Toddlers are naturally loving and giving, so it’s fun to find ways to celebrate a day about expressing love and kindness to others. Your little one likely can’t write
