Our Homemade Diwali Diyas!

Having never made salt dough before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I followed the half, half, whole rule, which ended up about half, half, three!!! We had to add so much more flour we ended up with tonnes of dough…so we decided to do a few Christmas decorations too (to be decorated at a later date)! We left them all out to air dry but I think the mixture was too thick and I had to put them into a low oven for an hour the next morning. This did the trick and they were soon ready to paint. We got messy with the paint, sequins and glitter and this is what they turned out like. We also did some rangoli decorations and mendhi designs on paper. All in all a great craft activity!

Happy Diwali!!
