Salt Dough Hand Turkeys

We did this last year with Ella and it was so cute. I figured that I would bring it back. It would be fun to do a new one this year since she has grown so much. We may get to play in dough again soon.

What you will need:

  •          Salt dough
  •          Your little one’s hand
  •          Paint
  •          Clay tools (these can vary depending on what embellishments you want to do)
  •          Oven
Start out with mixing up your salt dough. Combine 1 cup salt with 2 cups all-purpose flour. Knead in a cup of warm water and work until dough is smooth.

Flatten dough to be about half an inch thick and help your little one press their hand into the desired spot. You can also use tools that would normally be used with polymer or air dry clay to embellish your piece. Here I have used letter stamps to add the wording. Anything you decorate with at this point must be able to go into the oven.  

      Bake your piece for 45 minutes at 325F. For thicker pieces, you may need to let it bake a little longer. You will want to check your turkey every little bit to make sure that it is not warping. Let it cool completely.  Decorate your turkey and enjoy.
