In our StoryHug Woodland Workshop we made salt-dough beads.
Then, into the woods we went….
…to where some very similar beads had been found by an old elf. With the help of Hedgehog, Squirrel, Little Owl, the Two Tiny Children who live in the woods and all the lovely StoryHug children, the beads were strung into a necklace for a princess!
If you would like to make your own here is the recipe:
2 cups plain flour
1 cup salt
upto 1 cup water
1. Mix flour and salt.
2. Add water gradually.
3. Add food colouring or poster paint to the dough, if you would like it coloured.
4. Bake the beads at 75-100C for 30mins-1hour and leave to finish drying on a radiator. Or simply leave to dry without baking.
