Microwave Decorations

McKee class made salt dough decorations for their Christmas tree and then took them home. They wrote some instructions to tell you how to do it at home (notes from Mrs Matthews in the brackets).

Mix the flour, salt and water together in a bowl
(1 cup salt, 1 cup flour, 1-2 cups water).

Squeeze together with your fingers.


Roll with a rolly thing (rolling pin!).


Cut out stars and angels with the cutters.


Get a grown up to make holes in their heads with a pen
(a straw works better but we did not have one to hand).


Cook them in the microwave. (Between 2-4 minutes.
 It is best to cook less than you think and gradually
add more time because they can burn.)


Paint them with glue and water mixed together.


Put them into lots and lots of glitter.


Put a pretty ribbon in the hole and put them on your tree.
