Saltdough Mermaid Wand and Neptune's Trident

The Butterballs collected a bucketful of pebbles and seashells from our last visit to the beach...time to put them to use!!!
First, we mixed a batch of Whole-wheat Salt dough.
Recipe :

Mix together, half a cup of whole wheat flour, half a cup of salt and a third of a cup of water until it forms a slightly sticky dough.
Tamlyn cut out a star for her Mermaid Wand and I helped Ethan cut out a trident.
The Butterballs happily decorated their dough shapes with seashells and pebbles.

We carefully pushed in a skewer and baked our crafts for 
20 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.

A bit of ribbon, a few beads and a dab of paint, and the Butterballs were ready for a game of 'Under the Sea'
