I am a member of FamilyFun.com and LOVE the weekly e-mails I get from them. Every Wednesday they send out a "weekender" e-mail with craft ideas. Today I found one for Salt Dough Ghosts and I think Jordan and I will make some bitty ghosts tonight.
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup salt
- 1/2 cup water
- Wooden spoon
- Fine-point permanent black marker
Combine the flour, salt and water in a bowl. Stir the mixture with a wooden spoon until smooth.
Divide the dough into 6 equal pieces and shape each into a ghost, flattening the base so it will stand up.
Microwave the ghosts on a plate one or two at a time for 20-30 second intervals until the dough is fairly firm (about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes total). Let the ghosts cool (they can get quite hot).
Use a fine-point permanent black marker to draw on eyes and a mouth.
