I've been spending my birthday my favorite way, hanging out with my family. Nathan and I made some Salt Dough and used cookies cutters shaped like flowers and a butterfly. Later, Nicholas, Sarah and Nathan had fun painting them. We glued a craft stick to the backs of the flowers (and a few butterflies) that they painted green to make it look like a stem. We also attached a magnet to the back to make really cute fridge magnets for spring. Sarah and Nicholas want to give some to their teachers and Nathan wants to give one to "the old lady in the yellow house" (one of our elderly neighbors who is always giving the boys treats). They came out really cute! You can find the salt dough recipe here.
Funny....this doesn't smell like a real flower!
