make it; Salt dough.

Byline: ADELE JENNINGS

This recipe is NOT for eating - but it is great fun to play with and can keep a group of bouncy kids content for an afternoon! You will need: 300g plain flour 300g salt 200ml water 1tsp oil A good supply of cookie cutters, round-ended knives, forks and anything else that will make good shapes in dough.

You'll also need different coloured paints and brushes and glitter. Plus a supply of cookies to keep the little lovelies happy while they wait for the dough to cook and cool!

Put all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix together, squeezing and squashing until you have a ball of dough. Divide the dough between the kids and let them create.

Try making a pretty hanging decoration by cutting out heart or flower shapes, punch a hole in the top with a cocktail stick for a ribbon to be threaded through when they are cooked and painted.

How about making a salt dough car or teddy-bear ornament or salt dough bugs and spiders to frighten little sisters with? ga When the creations are complete, place them on a baking sheet and bake at 180[degrees]C/ gas mark 4 in a pre-heated oven for 20 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack and then paint them in bold and bright colours.
