Salt Dough Family Keepsakes

The whole family can get involved with this kit! Mix up some salt dough, bake it, and decorate it to create a unique family keepsake!

Your Kit includes: 1 bag of flour, 1 bag of salt, 1 piece of twine, 1 cookie cutter, 1 rolling pin, and 1 set of markers.


Mix flour, salt, and 1 cup of warm water together in a bowl. Knead until combined and dough forms. 


Use rolling pin to roll out dough to desired thickness. Use cookie cutter or free style the shape of your keepsake!

If you want to hang your keepsake, be sure to punch a hole out somewhere using a pencil or straw. 


Be creative! You can cut out a circle by using a glass, trace your hand, or press a finger, hand, foot, or a pet's paw into the dough!


Once done shaping, put all keepsakes on cookie sheet and bake at 250 degrees for 3 hours. Flip halfway through baking. 

When keepsakes are cool to touch, they can be decorated! Use provided markers to finish your masterpiece and hang it with a piece of twine.
