Here is an easy holiday activity that your kiddos will LOVE. The best part? They can gift to loved ones. We write the year on the back so we can see which ones we made each year. Gingerbread men are up for this weekend! What are you creating this holiday season? Is it edible, or maybe it is a gift or a craft? Tag @themiltonmoms in your photos so we can see what you are up to.





1/2 cup salt

1 cup flour

1/2 cup water

You’ll also want: cookie cutters, paints, glitter, mod podge, a straw and some string.




mix salt, flour and water together until dough forms. Roll out on a flat surface. Use cookie cutters to create fun shapes of your choice. Use a straw to poke a hole in the top- this is where you will put your string to hang!


Spread out evenly on a cookie sheet. Spray lightly with a cooking spray- this will keep their color and prevent from drying out.


Bake at 250 for 2-3 hours until completely dry. Let cool. Paint with acrylic paints, add glitter and other decorations. When dry, coat with mod lodge and let dry again- preferably over night. Tie with pretty ribbon and hang from tree or add as a gift tag to your gifts.
