report on salt dough

We tried the microwave salt dough decorations. They came out quite fine. Anjali had a good time kneading and cutting (we used some of her shape sorters to make shapes of stars, pentagons and the like). Then she used an icecream stick to poke holes in the shapes to make beads.

We microwaved them, for about 4 minutes, 1 minute at a time. It turned out very nice. I asked Anjali to paint the beads this morning. When i left for work, she had black paint on her palms and was painting the kitchen cupboard.

Will encourage her to thread them this evening. We need a tapestery needle though
