Glittermen….Pumpkin pie scented salt dough ornaments…..
We needed an indoor day activity to do since our mounds of beautiful snow also included negative 10 degree weather and bored kids.
I found a salt dough recipe and added 2 TBSP. of pumpkin pie spice to give it that holiday smell, feel and color. You can also add ginger and cinnamon for a gingerbread scent!
I also used whole wheat flour so it started off a tad browner.
We decided to do fake cookies. I did put hole sin the top with a sharpened pencil incase we decided to hang them up.
Since many of our “cookies” came out like this, I decided to help out and do a few more traditional gingerbread man shaped ones myself.
After air drying; we brushed them with white school glue and used craft glitter and those colored glitter glue pens for “icing”.
and the glittering began…
I didn’t know what I was in for.
glitter pens, glitter table, glitter girls, glitter mom and of course a glitter floor.
but we had a blast.
I strung mine on twine with the crystals and greenery over my sink.
the other extra “cookies” we put in the hutch.
They actually still have a faint gingerbread scent which is nice.
I don’t know if they will keep until next year, but we might make a few to use as gift tags on packages with a clay stamping kit… if I’m up for more glitter.
