House Works: Valentine's Day Craft

Valentine's Day is quickly approaching and you might be trying to think of something to give your special someone that's truly memorable. Sometimes handmade items from you or your children are the perfect Valentine's Day gift.

In House Works, Moms Everyday blogger Alison Bickel joins us with a valentine craft that you can make at home with your kids.

Salt Dough Recipe

1/2 cup salt

1 cup flour

1/2 cup water

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.

Mix together, salt, flour, and water until dough is formed.

Knead the dough on a floured surface until the mixture is elastic and smooth. If dough is too sticky, sprinkle with flour and continue to do so until stickiness is gone. Do not add too much flour as this will dry out the dough and cause it to crack before it’s baked.

Roll out the dough to about ¼” thick with a rolling pin that has been dusted with flour.

Use different sized heart-shaped cookie cutters to create as many pieces as you like.

Place all hearts onto an ungreased cookie sheet and place into the preheated oven.

Bake for 2 hours.

Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

Pretty easy, huh?
