Day #4 Of Sanity

I am officially insane for posting a blog at 1:07 AM.
Ian started out night off roasting marshmallows for our "smore experience".
He was the perfect marshmallow roaster.

We completed our night with Salt Dough Ornaments.
-4 cups of All Purpose Flour
-1 cup salt
-1 1/2 Cups of Water
Mix the dry ingredients(Salt & Flour) well.
Gradually pour water into the flour & salt mixture while mixing with a spoon.
Finish kneading with your hands.
Roll the dough out to about 1/8th inch thick, and apply the cookie cutters to shape your ornaments. :)
This is the fun part.
Let the kids have at it!
One thing I cannot stand are false oven directions! I was informed to set the oven to 325 degrees, and let the ornaments cook for an hour. My first batch came out puffy, and some even had a burnt look. Thank goodness I had a second batch! I left the oven settings at 325, and let them cook inbetween 15 & 20 minutes, and they came out perfect.
 For tomorrow's sanity we shall paint the ornaments outside. :)
