Alec and I decided to make some special valentines gifts for his friends. Since he loves to work with dough (especially play dough), we made pendants and beads out of colored salt dough and then threaded them onto ribbon to make necklaces.
Salt dough is super easy to make. Here is our recipe:
- 1 part salt
- 1 part water
- 2 parts flour
- vegetable oil (if you wish)
- food color
We used a drinking straw to make holes in our pendants and beads. And we decorated our creations with sugar silver balls and hearts. You can also use stamps to print names in your dough.
Once our pendants and beads were dry, we threaded them on red ribbon to make Valentines Necklaces that we will send to Alec’s friends!

Last year we did finger painting with edible paint.
