Holiday Crafts for KidsCore CurriculumStandard 1 (Making): The student will explore and refine the application of media, techniques, and artistic processes. Objective 1 Explore a variety of art materials while learning new techniques and processes. Differentiate between foreground, middle ground, and background in the production of artwork.
Observe objects in detail and portray them with greater accuracy in works of art.
Simplify the beginning of a work of art, using start-up skills; e.g., blocking-in, gesture drawing, stick figures.

Salt Dough OrnamentsRecipe
Prep Time: 30 minutesCook Time: 4 hoursTotal Time: 4 hours, 30 minutes
Ingredients2 cups flour 1 cup salt 1 cup warm waterInstructionsMix together flour and salt. Then mix in the warm water. Mix until you have a dough that is similar in consistency to pie crust. Take the dough and place it on a floured surface. Roll out the dough until it is about 1/4 inch thick. Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes. If you don't have cookie cutters you could use a glass to cut circles. Put the shapes on a cookie sheet. Then take a sharp object (I used a meat thermometer) to put a small hole in each shape where you will insert the ribbon. Make sure the hole goes all the way through the dough, because it will close up slightly while baking. Bake the salt dough ornaments for 4 to 6 hours at 200 degrees or until hardened.
