Collecting Treasures

May 19, 2012 at 8:41 am Leave a comment

Ever since I saw this post from No Time for Flash Cards I have been wanting to make these Nature Gifts.  one day I went to make them and realised we had no salt to make the dough with.  The other day I bought some and I have just been waiting for a day for collecting treasures to make it.


Yesterday was PERFECT.  It was my nephew’s birthday and we went to Kiama to look for sea glass on the beach and sea glass we found!


After dragging the children off the beach we headed home and we mixed the salt dough (1 cup of salt, 2 cups of plain flour and 3/4- 1 cup of warm water) and began kneading the dough.

Adding our sea glass and shells

Alexander and I made “pizzas”.  He also made a face. Emily liked making snakes.

Very excited to finally get to try this out and we have more dough left in the fridge to make some more another day.


Anyway after a quiet hiatus the children and I have had a flurry of creativity so more posts to follow later!
