I've been wanting to make some sugar cookie looking ornaments for the past few years. Lily's old enough now that I thought I should try.
I found a baking soda play dough recipe that I really like. It didn't smell good cooking and cooling, but I liked the end result.
Lily rolled out the dough, cut it, and put it on the pan all by herself.
And I didn't even care that she was making a mess.
They took about 3 days to dry and 4 days to paint, (we came back to work on them every other day).
