Salt Dough Easter Eggs

We've been spending a lot of time puttering around this house, the girls and me.  It hit me like a stampeding buffalo a few weeks ago that Zadie is really, actually, no backing out going to kindergarten in the fall... all.  day.  every. day.  How did this happen?!?!

So, we've been skipping out on preschool to, you know, go shoe shopping, play in the backyard, finger paint.  All those essential, need-to-miss-school type activities.

Last Wednesday we made salt dough, rolled it out, cut it with cookie cutters, baked and painted these adorable easter ornaments.  We found the tutorial on Pinterest (of course), you can find it at designmom  She does a great job of walking you through the steps.

I can remember making salt dough ornaments with my mom when I was little, but I had never thought to do them with cookie cutters.  It made the project totally doable for the under 4 crowd.

Zadie is so proud of our little Easter tree that she drags all visitors into the dining room to admire it.  And they better admire it properly.

Hope you are having a happy first day of Spring and joyfully awaiting the Easter season!
