Make salt dough using the recipe provided.  Take a portion, flatten.  Have the child press their hand  into the dough and let it dry.  Use a straw to make a hole to hang the piece.  Cut out the tag and Have  the children sign their name on the tag.  After the piece is dry, insert a ribbon and a tag in the hole and tie.

Take about 1 cup salt and dissolve it in about 1 1/4 cup water (or a little more).
Then stir in about 3 cups flour ( one cup at a time), until it's a nice soft dough.

You can shape it or cut it out with cookie cutters. Let it harden or bake it at 200 degree F until hard. Then paint with regular acrylics.
