Operation daddies birthday day 1! Salt dough and paper

Wednesday is daddies birthday, so the two Ajs are creating away in secret!! Today has been a very busy day of painting to create a special top secret present and wrapping paper, another top secret present using home made decorative paper, also we used salt dough to make, you guessed it, another top secret present!

The salt dough was made using:
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup

Add the ingredients together and mix till it forms a dough, once moulded bake in a low oven, 100degrees c, for three hours then paint and varnish.

Arthur really enjoyed this as it was similar to play dough, and it works on his hand dexterity, creativity and fine motor skills! 

The decorative paper was made using the same technique as yesterday, except before pouring into the mold I let Arthur loose with glitter and confetti!  There are a few other elements, but they won't be revealed until Wednesday in case daddy peeks!

So here are some teasers!
