Kid's Christmas Craft Ornament

This one recipe of Play Dough is really getting some mileage. A few months ago, my son and I made Homemade Play Dough as a great activity, and I played around with some cookie cutters. I ended up making Halloween Plant Decorations, and had some hearts that I had made that I knew would make a fun project sometime down the road.

I let the hearts dry for a few months (OK, maybe I let them dry for a few weeks then stashed them in a cabinet...and then forgot about them). Then I painted them red, and let my son add his own special metallic gold paint swipes across the hearts. Added some gold twine, and now they are Christmas ornaments for grandparents. My son loves any excuse to paint, so this was a great project!
