Salt Dough Candle Holders

Malik got a book at school called Craft Ideas For Kids. He and Rhys looked through it at least 50 times then announced that they would be making Salt Dough Christmas Candle Holders for their teachers and Grandma's and Papa's for Christmas. After looking over the ingredient list and making a list on Saturday we headed to the store. Then, yesterday after church, we began our 7 hour project. Mind you it's not a difficult project, my children are just perfectionists! They spent almost 4 hours painting them after they had cooked! Fun project, even Jorie and Dad got into it!
Check out the green paint on Rhys' forehead and red paint on his cheek....When Malik is really consentrating he sticks his tongue out the side of his mouth....

Wow, I was expecting some mishapened kinda round thing with jagged edges....They really are perfectionists, and good ones at that.

What a cute idea? They look adorable. Maybe I will have to remember that for next year.

So fun! I was glad to check your blog and see that it was updated! And glad you are at least semi-settled and enjoying being back in Colorado! Your Christmas card was beautiful, as always. I love your family picture! I hope our card makes it to you--we sent it before I got your new address. Love ya!

I'm so impressed with your project. I'm totally in awe of you as a mother for having the patience and the kids for doing such an awesome job! My boys are not very happy with me since we are dragging them to Utah and they don't even get to play with Malik and Rhys. So sad without you!

I had Malik remove his shirt after he dripped paint all over his pants and ruined them! Apparently I didn't need to worry about Rhys' clothes, just his face.......
