Colored Ornaments mix in a jar
This mix can be doubled and put in a Qt jar for larger families.
You can also scent this by adding Cinnamon or apple pie spice or Pumpkin pie spice to the mix either before you pack or when they make it.
I usually Put in a baggy and attach to jar, 1/8 cup of one of those spice blends listed above and the coloring in another baggy as an option so it is their choice. One year I made the jar's look like snowmen and in one hand was the spice and the other had the coloring.
- 1/3 c
- 1 Tbsp
- powdered tempera paint ( any color desired and mix with salt before adding) optional
- 1 3/4 c
decorate as disired and add a cookie cutter if desired.
Attach a lable saying:
Put contents of jar into a bowl and mix together well. Add 1/2 cup plus 1 Tablespoon WATER, Mix well. Knead well and roll out dough or shape into desired ornament, Using a tooth pick make a hole through the ornament or write anthing you wish on it and place on a cookie sheet. Bake at 225 degrees for 1 1/2 hours turning them over every 1/2 hour until the thickest part has no give.
Once cooked and cooled you can glue stuff to them, paint or varnish them.
Note: DO NOT EAT!
