Salt Dough Hearts - A Valentine's DIY

This will be Kalista's first time handing out Valentines to friends at school. With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to make her first time super special. And since the school is asking us not to bring candy, this project is perfect.

Like all projects, you need inspiration! My inspiration came from my love for Modge Podge and my sweet friend, Marina, over at Yummy Mummy Kitchen. Did you know she has a book coming out in April? You can pre-order on Amazon!

What you need:
2 cups of flour
1 cup table salt
3/4 cup water

Preheat oven to 200 F. Mix together in a bowl and then knead like you would dough. You may need to add more water or flour depending on the texture. You want the dough nice and smooth. Roll dough out on floured surface and cut out shapes with cookie cutters. Place on baking pan and bake for 20 minutes; flip once after 10 minutes. Let cool.

*I baked mine for about 30 minutes. I rolled my dough out a little thicker than usual because I wanted to make sure my fluted heart edges would show nicely.

Grab your Modge Podge, glitter, and any kid who is willing to make your kitchen look like a glitter war zone and let 'em have at it. Pour yourself a glass of wine too. ; )

 Happy Valentine's Day!
